The top two scoring teams were qualified for the final phase. The remaining four teams competed in a new bracket being eliminated from the final phase. The bottom two were relegated to the second tier in the next edition. The final phase was played in two separate groups of six teams each - including the two teams qualified from the initial phase, one in each bracket.[1][2][3]
