Montenegro competed at the 2015 edition of the FIVB Volleyball World League for the first time since the country's independence in 2006 when they entered as Serbia and Montenegro. They were the lowest-ranked side in the tournament in joint-86th place, but they took heart from their 2014 campaign when they were crowned champions of the European League. In what was their first gold medal in a major international competition, they won their pool with six wins from eight matches, defeated Macedonia at the semifinal stage and beat Greece in a two-legged final. Last year, they put on another impressive performance when they won five of their six matches in the Group 3 Preliminary Round. They lost the Group 3 final to Egypt.
Montenegro will rely on the likes of European League MVP Milos Culafic to push them on this season. Competing as Serbia and Montenegro from 2003 to 2006, they finished second in the 2003 and 2005 World Leagues, equal-fifth at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games and fourth at the 2006 FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship. The team's head coach is Serbian Slobodan Boskan, who played in the Yugoslavia team which won the gold medal at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
