The seventh tournament featured only eight teams, divided into pools A and B. For the first time the A and B pools were also organised as separate competitions in different venues, and in different weeks. The A Pool in Malmö was won by Spain, and the B pool by Netherlands. France and Spain were represented by their respective "A" teams.

Netherlands' win was the first time a host team had won an official FIRA championship (France had won the unofficial title as hosts in 1988)
