[Editor’s note: This deadline has now past to submit your predictions.]

The time has come to make your Olympic men’s volleyball tournament predictions for a chance to win a $100 gift card to Athlete Performance Solutions.

Off the Block announced Monday that individuals can now participate in the Off the Block/Athlete Performance Solutions Preliminary Round Standings Prediction Challenge.

The person who most accurately predicts the placement of teams in the final preliminary round standings for the Olympic indoor men’s volleyball tournament will win the $100 gift card. Participants can submit their standings predictions by filling out the form below or by clicking here.


The 12-team Olympic men’s volleyball tournament will begin Saturday with the preliminary round.

Teams for the preliminary round have been placed in two six-team pools and will compete in a five-match round-robin against the other teams in the same pool. The top-four teams in each pool at the end of the preliminary round will advance to the quarterfinals.

In the event of a tie for first place among the participants, one contestant from the first-place predictions will be randomly selected for the gift card.

Off the Block will contact the winner of this contest via email. Off the Block is a national award winning website that covers college men’s volleyball and the U.S. Men’s National Team.

Athlete Performance Solutions is a global footwear and apparel licensee of Nike. It also earlier this year unveiled clothing lines for U.S. men’s volleyball players Micah Christenson and Matt Anderson.

This contest is organized by Off the Block and is not affiliated with the Olympics or USA Volleyball. Predictions for this contest can be submitted up until the start of the tournament’s first match.
