Knockout phaseEdit

In the knockout phase, teams play against each other over a single match. If the match ends up as a draw, extra time will be played. If a winner doesn't occur after the extra time the winner emerges by penalty shoot-out.
The mechanism of the draws for each round is as follows:

  • In the draw for the first round, the teams from the first division are seeded and the teams that passed the qualification round are unseeded. The seeded teams are drawn against the unseeded teams in their respective region. (The teams from Southern Greece form the first group and the teams from Central and Northern Greece form the second group.)
  • In the draw for the Round of 32, there are no seedings and teams from the different group can be drawn against each other in their respective region.
  • In the draws for the Round of 16 onwards, there are no geographical criteria and teams from different regions can be drawn against each other.
