In this chapter, we investigated the influence of technical and tactical performance indicators in determining the match outcome, i.e. medallists and non-medallists during an indoor volleyball competition. A set of performance indicators, namely the ability to block, spike as well as tap, are shown to be essential in determining the chances of a team to either earn or lose a medal. It has been shown that both technical and tactical skills are essential for ensuring success in the men elite indoor volleyball championship. Moreover, a stacking-based machine learning approach was found to be effective in the identification of the chances for winning or losing a medal during a volleyball competition.
