At each stage of the tournament, the losing teams are not eliminated from the tournament, but go on to play other losing teams in a series of placement matches, in order to end up with an overall ranking of all teams. As a result, each of the 16 teams will play 6 matches, whether they win or lose.

Thus, the 3rd and 4th placed teams in each Group will be matched up for another round on August 26. The 4 winners of those games will go on to play off for the 9th through 12th positions, while the 4 losers will go on to play off for the 13th through 16th positions in the final ranking.

The 4 teams that lose in the Quarterfinals will go on to play off for 5th through 8th places, and the two teams that lose in the Semifinals will meet on August 30 to determine 3rd and 4th place.
