There are seven teams participating in two divisions in each Stage (there are four Stages) that will face each other in a round-robin system. Division A consists of the 8 top teams in Europe based on the BSWW European Ranking. Division B consists of the lower ranked teams and new entries to the competition. Each division has its own regulations and competition format.

Each team competes in two preliminary events to see their points obtained accumulated into an overall ranking that will determine the teams that qualify for the Superfinal. The top five teams of Division A (including the individual Stage winners) plus the host team Russia play in the Superfinal in Moscow (Russia) from August 26–29. The top five teams of Division B (including the individual Stage winners) plus the worst team in Division A will play in the Promotional Final to try to earn promotion to Division A for the 2012 season.
