All teams play at least five games. Teams that go into the playoffs will play six games. You play four group games; two on Friday and two on Saturday. Tournament will start at 08:00 on Friday morning, which means that long-distance teams usually choose to come already on Thursday evening. On Sunday, all teams have a placement game. The winner and runner up of each group goes to the playoffs where the losers of the
semifinals will play for bronze trophy on Sunday afternoon. Then the semifinals winners face each other in the final for the trophy in Trollhättan
