Men's
Men compete in a 16-team tournament with a total of 32 matches. The 16 teams are broken up into 4 groups (Groups A, B, C, D) of 4 teams each. The preliminary round of group matches begins with each team in a group playing the other 3 teams in a group. The preliminary matches are scored on a point system: 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss. The 2 teams from each group that have the most points advance, for a total of 8 teams advancing. The tournament continues with the quarterfinals, semifinals, bronze medal match, and gold medal match all determined by single elimination based on goals scored (or in the case of a tie penalty kicks).
