  • The Second Phase saw the twelve qualified teams divided into three groups of four. The teams within each group played each other in a double round-robin format. The top team from each group advanced to the Final Phase.
  • The Final Phase saw the three team play each other team once. The team with the most points at the end of the round was declared the champion.
