The tournament format is based on Pools of 4 or 5 teams in Round 1, played on a league basis, followed by progression into either the Cup or Plate Finals. Teams are divided into groups of 4 or 5 teams, so that each team plays the other teams once. The first and second teams in each group qualify for the “Cup Play-off”, the other teams in the group qualify for the “Plate Play-off”. The third and fourth in the group will also play against each other for ranking. All teams will play at least 4 games, and as many as 5 or 6 games. The tournament is played under all applicable FIFA or PFF rules.
