The Paralympic tournament features eight men’s teams. These are split into two groups of four teams, who play each other once in a round-robin format. Teams are awarded three points for a win and one point for a draw.
The top two teams in each group qualify for the semi-finals, with the winning semi-finalists going head to head for the gold.
In the semi-finals, if scores are tied the game goes straight to a penalty shoot-out. In the final, if scores are tied at the end of full time, two five-minute periods of extra time are played. If scores are still tied after this, the game goes to a penalty shoot-out of five shots per team, followed by sudden-death penalties if necessary.
