The Northern Ireland Men's National Volleyball Team is the national volleyball team of Northern Ireland. They compete in the World Championships and have qualified for Round 2 of the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship with Gerry Ford as Head Coach and Harry Gilliland as Assistant Coach. They also compete in the CEV European Small Nations division and have qualified for the Final of the tournament to be held in 2017. Both of which should see the team rise further in the 2017 FIVB rankings.

The team is currently in training at its base in the National Volleyball Performance Centre at Ulster University Jordanstown and has training camps throughout the year. Elite level players, based in other countries, who have NI heritage and would like to try out for the team are welcome to contact the programme for more information.
