Teams from 16 nations participated in the championship. These teams were divided into four groups for the Preliminary Round. Based on the results of the Preliminary round, the teams were then resorted into groups for the Quarterfinal round, with the top two finishers in each Preliminary group placed into Quarterfinal Groups A and B, and the bottom two finishers placed into Groups C and D. Based on the placement in the Quarterfinal round, the teams were then sorted into groups of four, each of which played a two-round knockout draw to determine the final standings.[1]
