Then the eight teams would be split into two groups of 4 teams each. Within each of these groups, the teams will play against each other in singles matches(Hd1) in a round trip. The three best teams left standing in the groups would advance to the Playoffs.
The playoffs will be held in a Double Elimination Format where the team in the second place of one group will play against the team in the third place of the other group and vice versa. The two teams at the top of their respective groups will wait for the next round. In the next round, the four teams will fight against each other and the two teams left standing at the end will reach the Grand Final
