The national teams will be divided into two groups, where they will play two games, and the results will only determine the positions in which they will be accommodated. The first round will end on Saturday, July 31, and then the elimination round (from August 1 to 4). The elimination round will be in a double elimination format. The winners of each group will start in the second phase. The four remaining teams (which will be second and third place) will compete in the first phase to access the upper part of the key (where the first place will be). The top two winners will advance directly to the first semi-final, scheduled for Wednesday, August 4. The winner of the first semifinal will advance to the Gold Medal Game, while the loser will still have a chance through the second semifinal, which will be played on Thursday, August 5, against the team from the losers bracket. The medal games will be played on Saturday, August 7.
