NOTE: The 2008 SWATCH FIVB World Tour champions will be determined by calculating the points for a team’s best 14 women and 15 men finishes based on 75 percent of the 19 women’s and 20 men’s events (Open and Grand Slam events only) staged this season and rounded down. Although part of the 2008 SWATCH FIVB World Tour calendar, the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games does not reward world ranking points for the competition. #Clinched 2008 titles.

*The above earning rankings for men and women do count the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games participations where no points or money were awarded.
