After the ranking round, 12 teams shoot in a head-to-head elimination format. Each team consists of three athletes, who each shoot four sets of six arrows (two arrows per archer). The team with the highest total wins the match, with winning teams progressing through the draw until only the finalists remain.
If two teams are tied, a three-arrow shoot-off is held. If this doesn’t separate them, the team closest to the centre of the target is the winner.
The two winning teams from the respective semi-final matches compete in the gold-medal match and the remaining teams compete in the bronze-medal match.
