TIE BREAKING RULE
4.1. If a score is a tie at the end of the second half, play shall be continued for an
extra period of 5 minutes or as many such periods of 5 minutes as may be necessary to break the tie. An interval of 2 minutes shall be allowed before each extra period.
4.2. The ranking of the teams in each group of a contest shall be made on points, according to their win-loss records, namely 2 points for each game won, 1 point for each game lost and 0 point for a game lost by forfeit. If at the end of a round some teams are equal with the same number of points, the following method will be used to determine the placing:
4.2.1. In the event two teams have the same number of points in the placing (based on win-loss records), the classification will be established taking into account only the result of the game between the two teams involved.
4.2.2. If more than two teams have equal points in the placing (based on win- loss records), a second ranking method will use the results of the games between the teams involved.
4.2.3. If the situation is not resolved and teams have equal points in the placing after the second ranking method, then goal average (by mathematical division), taking into account only the results of the games between the teams involved will be made to determine the classification.
4.2.4. If it is still not finally resolved, the ranking will be determined by goal average, taking into account all the results of the games from the group in question.
NOTE: Goal average is determined by dividing points for by points against. The highest quotient is the winner.
The competition shall be played in two divisions with round robin play in each division. The top two teams in each division play off for medals and other teams for ranking.
