This decision has a great value because it recognizes the event of the International Committee of the Mediterranean Games and it helped the teams participating in the tournament, to earn valuable points and to climb in higher places in the qualification ranking of the Tokyo Olympics.

As a result, the II Mediterranean Beach Games Beach Volleyball tournaments were included in the circuit of 12 top level tournaments that provide qualification points for the Olympic Games.
