2014 World Broomball Championship Schedule Format
6 TEAM FORMAT: MASTERS / WOMEN’S / MIXED Categories: 6 TEAMS in each division.
STAGE 1: Round Robin Games. Within your category, every team will play every other team one time in a 5 game Round-Robin (RR). No overtime.
After 5 games the teams will be ranked in order from 1 to 6, based on total points. In the case of a tie in points, the ranking will be decided by the tie breaker criteria according to the revised rule book.
Stage 2: The teams ranked 1st, 2nd and 3rd will play in the “World Cup Semi-Finals” (WC SF), and the teams ranked 4th, 5th, and 6th will play in the “Hokkaido Cup Semi-Finals” (HC SF).
*Important*: Every team’s points will be reset to zero (BUT, previous points/ranking may be needed as a tie-breaker, so original ranking is important).
After the 2 game World Cup SF, the teams will be re-ranked in their grouping. The first place team and second place team will advance to the World Cup Gold Medal Game. The third place team of the World Cup SF will play in the World Cup Bronze medal game. Meanwhile, the top team from the Hokkaido Cup SF grouping will advance to the World Cup Bronze medal game. The 2 bottom teams from Hokkaido Cup SF will play a “Consolation” Final (which will decide 5th place overall).
All teams play exactly 8 games. 5 Round Robin, 2 Semi-Final, and 1 Final game.
All teams will play each other at least one time, and the Semi-Final groupings ensure that teams of similar levels will play each other more often.
Every team will play at least 1 of their first 5 games at each of the 3 arenas. Thereafter, arenas will be determined by grouping. All categories have the opportunity to play at all arenas.
10 TEAM FORMAT - MEN’S Category: 10 teams divided into 2 divisions of 5 each (RED division and BLUE division).
Stage 1: In the PRELIMINARY STAGE, all teams from one division will play one game against each team from the opposite division, for a total of 5 games each. No overtime.
Stage 2: “WORLD CUP Qualifier/Quarterfinals”: Next, the top 4 teams in each division will play a Qualifying game to determine whether they will compete in the World Cup section or the Challenge Cup section. Teams play within their own division (Rank 1 vs. Rank 4, Rank 2 vs. Rank 3). Note that the 5th ranked team in each division will automatically play in the Challenge Cup section. Regular OT will be played if necessary.
The winners of each World Cup Qualifier/Quarterfinal game will advance to the World Cup section semi-finals. The losers of each game will compete in the Challenge Cup section, along with the 5th ranked teams from above.
Stage 3: World Cup Group Semi-Finals (WC SF):
Stage 3: Challenge Cup Group Semi-Finals (CC SF):
BLUE DIVISION Semi-Final: The Quarterfinal losers + 5th place BLUE division (after Preliminary Stage) will play a 2 game Round Robin to determine Challenge Cup final games.
*Important*: Every team’s points will be reset to zero (BUT, previous points/ranking may be needed as a tie-breaker).
