The tournament structure will follow the format in the image below. The 16 teams will be split into 4 groups of 4 teams at random. If you win twice in the group stage you qualify for the top 8, if you lose twice in the group stage, your team is eliminated. The top 8 bracket will be single elimination, with the addition of a 3rd place match.
