Prior history

Between 1918 and 1991, Montenegro was part of Yugoslavia, and its players participated in the Yugoslavia national water polo team. Between 1992 and 2006, it was part of FR Yugoslavia, later Serbia and Montenegro, so Montenegrin players played for those teams; Serbia is the sole successor to these countries so those results are recorded at Serbia national water polo team.
