How many matches will we play?
The teams are divided into groups of five teams where they all meet in a round robin series. In case there are an uneven number of teams in the age category some groups many contain six teams. All teams are guaranteed to play at least four matches in the group stage.
The two first teams in each group will advance to play off A. The other teams in the group will advance to play off B. All play off matches will be decided by the cup system, i.e. by direct elimination. This means that all team are guaranteed at least five matches in the tournament.
