Each team in an Elite group will compete in seven games. Those in the Plate group will compete in five games.

The top-placed team in each Elite group advances to the quarterfinal. The teams who place second will then be ranked from 8 to 1 based on their total points, victories, and NRR, if necessary. In a pre-quarterfinal matchup, the team that places eighth overall will compete against the Plate group winner.

The top four clubs in the Plate group, meanwhile, will advance to the Plate semi-final. The top-ranked team will face the fourth-ranked team, while the second- and third-placed teams will square off. The winner of the final, which will be played against one of the four teams that came in second place in their Elite group, will be decided by the victor of these two semi-final matches.
