The tournament will be divided into a group stage (round robin) with the winner and runner-up of each group making it into the second stage’s single elimination. For round robin, we will have a total of 8 groups of 4 players placed through a pre-tournament shuffle (random). These groups will be designated an alphabet (A – H) and shall be referred to as Group A1, Group A2, Group B1, Group C3, etc
Group progression will be based on a point system whereby a match win equals 3 points, a draw gives a single point and a loss results in no points at all. These points will be tallied after all group matches have been played, at which point the top two players with the highest points proceed to the single elimination round of 16. These top players shall be designated Winner (W.) and Runner-up (R.) for their respective groups.
