The Pakistan men's national volleyball team represents Pakistan in international volleyball competitions.

Pakistan Volleyball Federation was founded on 31 January 1955. Thereafter, volleyball was taken up at the national level. The Federation received recognition and was affiliated to the Pakistan Olympic Association and the International Volleyball Federation the same year.

In Pakistan, during the fifties and sixties, the standard of volleyball was quite high and comparable to the best Asian countries. Pakistan had the honour of winning a bronze medal during the 1962 Asian Games at Jakarta where the matches were played outdoor.
