Tournament format[edit]

The tournament started in 1999, and is a true "World Series" since ten regions from around the world send in teams:

The ten teams are divided into two pools of five members each.[3] The two best teams from each pool then advance to the semi-finals. The winners in the semi-finals play for the championship. All matches are single-elimination games. The losing teams face off in classification games for third through tenth place.
