Participating in the event are 16 teams that consist of the minor champions and runners up, as well as the bottom eight teams from the previous major. The teams are then split into four pools and are randomly selected to face off against one another, with teams from pool one competing against teams from pool four, and teams from pools two and three being put head to head.
