Water polo at the 1992 Summer Olympics

The men's water polo tournament at the 1992 Summer Olympics was held from August 1 to August 10, 1992, in Barcelona, Spain. Reigning world champion Yugoslavia had qualified for the tournament, but as it had formally dissolved in the interim, it didn't participate. The successor countries didn't participate for several reasons. Serbia and Montenegro couldn't participate due to the UN sanctions due to their aggression on Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Croatia, which was the strongest among them at the time (the Croatian club was champion of Yugoslavia and European Champions' Cup winner), also did not participate in the water polo tournament.

The position of Yugoslavia was replaced by Czechoslovakia.
