- CLASSIFICATION OF TEAMS

D.1 Procedure

D.1.1 Teams shall be classified according to their win-loss record, namely 2 points for each

game won, 1 point for each game lost (including lost by default) and 0 points for a

game lost by forfeit.

D.1.2 The procedure is to be applied for all competitions with a round-robin system.

D.1.3 If 2 or more teams have the same win-loss record of all games in the group, the

game(s) between these 2 or more teams shall decide on the classification. If the 2 or

more teams have the same win-loss record of the games between them, further

criteria will be applied in the following order:

Higher goal difference of the games between them.

Higher number of goals scored in the games between them.

Higher goal difference of all games in the group.

Higher number of goals scored in all games in the group.

If still tied before all games have been played in the group, tied teams shall share the

same ranking. If these criteria still cannot decide at the end of the group phase, a

draw shall decide on the final classification.

D.1.4 If at any level of these criteria one or more team(s) can be classified, the procedure

of D.1.3 shall be repeated from the beginning for all the remaining teams not classified

yet.
