Field A: 9x12m, used for official games of division A
Field B: 6x9m, used for official games of division B
Field C: 6x9m, used for testing (both divisions)
The time before the scheduled start of official games is reserved for the two opposing teams of the next match. If there is no time left between the end of a match and the scheduled start of the next match, testing time on the playing field cannot be granted.
On field C, testing time slots will be distributed by the OC. There will be three options:
One team can use the field as a half of a division A field (there will be a large goal as well)
One team can use it as a full-size division B field
Two teams can use it simultaneously as a half of a division B field
After all games of the day have finished, all teams are free to test on either field. If there is too much demand, the OC will also coordinate it.
Teams in division A will play a round robin group stage followed by a double elimination playoff stage.
There are two groups, with 5 and 4 teams
The team that places first or second the group starts in the upper bracket
The other teams start in the lower bracket
No team drops out after the group stage
Every group consists of three teams from pool 1 and one or two teams from pool 2
The pools were decided using the results of previous official tournaments
The rule that there is no more than 1 team from the same country in the same group will not be used
