The European Volleyball Championship is a sport competition for national teams, currently held biannually and organized by the CEV, the European volleyball federation. There are both men's and women's competitions.

The first European Championships were held in 1948 in Italy (men) and in 1949 in Czechoslovakia (women). The initial gap between championships was variable, but since 1975 they have been held every two years.
