In the first round, the participating teams are split into four round-robin pools of six. The top four from the final standings in each pool will advance to the second round, where the teams will play in two pools of eight, with teams emerging from Pools A and D combined in one group and those from Pools B and C in another. In each of the two second-round pools, each team will play only against the four rivals they did not meet in the first round. The best three from each second-round pool will progress to the third round, where two round-robin pools of three teams will determine the four semifinalists. The two third-placed sides will face each other in a direct battle for the fifth place.
