Puerto Rican Carlos Rivera and American Brigham Beatie will officiate in the beach volleyball tournament.

The teams comprise the world's best 22 volleyball and 19 beach volleyball referees, representing all five Continental Confederations.

The referees will be overseen by six referee coaches (three per disciplines), all of whom are members of the FIVB Refereeing and Rules of the Games Commission. The referee coaches will supervise the referee teams, providing guidance, based on their extensive knowledge and expertise, in the build-up to and during the Olympic Games.

For the first time in Olympic history, the referee teams for each discipline will also include three 'Challenge' referees, who will be assigned to support the work of the first and second referees during matches. The highly-renowned Video Challenge System was successfully introduced at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games to ensure greater accuracy and add to the spectacle of matches.
