Bearing in mind that one of the fundamental goals of the tournament is to play, the competition system will be organized according to the number of teams entered by levels, in order to maximize the number of games per team. We aim to provide the teams the same level of competition the previous editions and a large number of games (6/7 games) throughout the tournament.

All matches will be played in door/pavilion, at the best of 3 sets (1st and 2nd sets until 25 points and the 3rd set required to play up to 15 points all with a 2 points difference). The final will be played at the best of 5 sets.

The tournament will run over three phases:

- 1st stage – Inter-groups - qualifying.

- 2nd stage - Crossings groups.

- 3rd stage – Scheduling / Semifinals / Finals.
