Welcome to the PAW Federation Cup Play-Offs :)

Here is how it will work:

- The 9 countries that lost in the 1st round of the main draw in April will play eachother. There will be 4 matches, 3 will be contested between 2 countires, 1 will be contested between 3 countries.

- The 4 winning countries will then go through to the 2nd round of play-offs. 2 matches will take place, both to be contested between 2 countries.

- The 2 winning countries in the 2nd round of play-offs will go through to battle each other for 9th to 10th place. The 2 losing countries in the 2nd round of play-offs will face eachother to battle for 11th to 12th place.

- The 5 losing countries in the 1st round of play-offs will be drawn against eachother. 2 matches to take place, 1 to be contested between 2, the other to be contested between 3.

- The 2 match winners will go through to battle for 13th to 14th place. The 3 losers will then play a match that will determine 15th, 16th and 17th place.

- The main draw losing quarter-finalists will be drawn against each other. 2 matches, each match to be contested between 2 countries

- The winners will then battle for 5th to 6th place, the losers will face eachother to determine 7th and 8th place.

- The main draw semi-finalists will play each other for 3rd to 4th place.

- Those countries who finish 13th-17th place will be relegated next year and will join new countries to PAW.
