The final standing was based on individual wins and defeats.

  • The 6 group winners of the Quarterfinals group stage advanced to the Semifinals group stage, which was played as a single group under the same round-robin rules.
  • The group winner and the runner-up of the Semifinals group stage qualified for the final, which was played at a predetermined venue.
