Under coach Andrey Patrakov, the team did not qualify for the Poland 2014 FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship and last competed in that event in 2006, when they finished 21st, two places lower than their only other appearance in Argentina 2002. At the 2014 Asian Games they won three of their seven matches. A defeat to Chinese Taipei gave them an overall rank of 10th.

Since Kazakhstan's independence in 1992 they have competed at 10 Asian Championships. Their best result was a silver medal in 1993 and a year later they took fourth at the Asian Games. More recently in 2015 they finished ninth at the Asian Championships after winning over Pakistan in a classification match. In 2014, they took third in the AVC Cup in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
