The 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be the main event of the international volleyball season at which 12 teams will fight for the honors, starting from July 24, according to the official schedule. Interestingly, unlike all the other major tournaments involving national teams, anthems before the matches in the preliminary stage will not be played. They will only be played before the quarterfinals, semifinals, the match for third place, and the final.

As for the games themselves, the decisions of line judges will be crucial. There will also be people responsible for passing the balls so the volleyball players will not bother taking them out of the basket. There will be no technical timeouts, so the coaches will have the opportunity to talk to the players only during timeouts they demand.

Given the tight daily schedule, apart from those teams that play the first match of the day, others will have shortened warm-up time. Even match delays are likely to occur.
