    Its format consists of dividing the teams into 4 groups, in which a single round robin is played against other teams of the same group to determine the quarter finalists. The top two teams from each group comprise the 8 quarter finalists. A knockout game is played between the top seed of group A and the lower seed of Group D and vice versa. The same happens between group B and C quarter finalists. The tournament goes on until 1 team becomes champion.
