WFC PLAYING SYSTEM
Groups are determined by a ballot system, based on ranking and are formed as follows:
- Group A & Group B each with two teams ranked 1-4 and two teams ranked 5-8
- Group C & Group D each with two teams ranked 9-12 and two teams ranked 13-16
Each team plays once against all teams in their group. After the group stage, the two best teams of group A and B go directly to the quarter-finals. Teams placed 3rd and 4th in group A and B and the teams placed 1st and 2nd in group C and D qualify to the play-off round. The winners of these matches proceed to the quarter-finals, while the losers move to placement matches. Quarter-finals, semi-finals and final match, along with placement matches for all teams determine the final standings.
