The two group winners qualify directly to the semi-finals. The other four teams will play in two qualification games (A2 v B3 and B2 v A3). The winners of those games will advance to the semi-finals. In the semi-finals, A1 will play the winner of B2vA3 and B1 will play the winner of A2vB3. Losers of the semi-finals play in the Bronze Medal game. Winners of the semi-finals play in the Gold Medal game.
The Senior Men (22 teams) are placed into three groups (2 groups of 7 and 1 group of 8 teams). Each group plays a round robin. At the end of the round robin there will be a ranking for positions 1 – 3 in each group. The top 2 teams in each group plus the two 3rd ranked teams with the better DSC qualify for the quarter-finals. Following the quarter-finals there will be semi-final games. The losers of the semi-finals play in the Bronze Medal game, the winners of the semi-finals play in the Gold Medal game.
