The Montenegro men's national water polo team represents Montenegro in international men's water polo competitions and is controlled by the Water Polo and Swimming Federation of Montenegro.

Prior history[edit]

Between 1918 and 1991, Montenegro was part of Yugoslavia, and its players participated in the Yugoslavia national water polo team. Between 1992 and 2006, it was part of FR Yugoslavia, later Serbia and Montenegro, so Montenegrin players played for those teams; Serbia is the sole successor to these countries so those results are recorded at Serbia national water polo team.
