Preliminary round[edit]

Advance directly to round of 16
Third place/'lucky loser' play-offs
Eliminated

The composition of the preliminary rounds was announced confirmed on 19 July 2012 in a draw held in Klagenfurt, Austria.[3]

Teams are awarded two points for a win and one for a loss.[4] If two teams are tied at the end of pool play, the tiebreakers is their head-to-head match.[4] If three or more teams are tied, the tiebreakers are (1) points between tied teams, (2) points ratio within pool, and (3) tournament seed.[4] The two best teams from each group advance to the round of 16. The two best third-placed teams also qualify. Two 'lucky loser' matches qualify two more of the third-placed teams.[5]
