The 2014 Men's European Volleyball League was the 11th edition of the annual men's European Volleyball League, which featured men's national volleyball teams from ten European countries.

Montenegro defeated Greece 5–1 match points in the final, which was played over two legs, to capture their first title.[1]

Format[edit]

This year saw no final four tournament. Instead the ten teams were split into two pools and played a single round robin with playing two matchups at home and two away, making a total of eight games for each team. The two top placed teams advanced to the semifinals, from where on a knockout system was used to determine the winner.[2]
