The system: best 8 European teams play a three-round knockout (quarterfinal, semi final, finals + small finals).

All other teams play the open section, while the 4 European teams that lost in the first round join the other teams.

The idea is to have the best European team(s), but also award the winner of the “open” section (the team with all wins).

Rules:

  • Teams are national teams.
  • Each team play on 5 boards (reserves are fine)
  • Each team must include at least a woman player and a junior player (U18)
