The study variables analyzed were the Attack, Block, Serve, Opponent Error, Reception, Dig, Set. The study sample consisted of 188 matches of the 2014 & 2018 FIVB Men’s World Championship and the data was taken from the official website of FIVB. The data was analyzed using Binary Logistic Regression (Forward: LR Method) with the result of the game as the dependent variable. The results of the study revealed that the variables found to be significant in predicting the winning and losing of a volleyball match at World championship level are Serve, Block, Attack, and reception while the variables Set, Dig and Opponent Errors were statistically insignificant.
