The Rio 2016 Olympic Games will include a total of 24 teams per gender. Qualification places are allocated to national federations and not teams, with each national federation allowed to have a maximum of two teams representing them per gender.
As hosts, Brazil are guaranteed one qualification berth per gender.
The national federation of the winners from the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships The Netherlands 2015 will also be granted a berth. As this was Brazil in both the men’s (Alison Cerutti and Bruno Schmidt) and women’s (Agatha Bednarczuk and Barbara Seixas) tournaments it means the hosts have reached the maximum quota of Olympic places allowed.
The 15 highest ranked teams on the Olympic Ranking List as of June 13, 2016 will each earn one quota place for their national federation to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, respecting the maximum of two quota places per national federation.
Each team must have participated in a minimum of 12 official FIVB Olympic Qualification tournaments as an individual (FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour/FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships The Netherlands 2015/recognised Continental Tour Finals) scheduled from January 1, 2015 until June 12, 2016 should they wish to be selected by a qualified national federation.
