Yuji Nishida (西田 有志, Nishida Yūji, born 30 January 2000) is a Japanese male volleyball player.

Nishida currently plays for JTEKT Stings, a volleyball club based in Kariya, Aichi, Japan. He made his debut with JTEKT Stings at V.League (Japan) on 6 January 2018 in a match against Osaka Blazers Sakai. His impressive debut at the young age of 17 soon earned him a position in JTEKT's Starting 6 [1] as well as Japan men's national volleyball team.

He is one of the youngest players in the 2018 roster of the Japan men's national volleyball team and FIVB cup Final.[2] He made his first international performance with the Japanese national team in 2018 FIVB Volleyball Men's Nations League. In June 2018, he played a pivotal role in securing Japan's first win in 11 years against Italy where he collected 24 points from 21 spikes and 3 aces.[3] In September 2018, in a match against Argentina in 2018 FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship, Nishida became the youngest player ever to score 30 points in a match.[4] In June 2019, Nishida broke serving records in the VNL history after hitting 7 aces in a single game during a match against Bulgaria.

He was called up to the Senior National team for the first time in April of the same year after graduation. Nishida made his senior national team debut on May 25, 2018, in his first Nations League match in Rouen, France. He was named a starter in that match against Australia, and played the full four sets, scoring 15 points. In the third week of the "Japan Round" held at the Osaka Municipal Central Gymnasium, the team faced Italy after losing in straight sets to Bulgaria and Poland. Nishida, who played the full match, scored 24 points, including three service aces, and was the best scorer of both teams combined, and the team won in full sets. Japan won in full sets for the first time in 11 years against a strong team that had won three consecutive world championships. In the end, Japan finished the tournament in 12th place with 6 wins and 9 losses.
