Little by little, more information about the basketball tournament at the Tokyo Olympics became known. For now, changes to the contest system and the dates for the draw, which will take place on February 2, have been confirmed. Regarding the system, the main change is that instead of two groups, there will be 3 groups in the preliminary stage, and that the champion will play a total of 6 matches instead of the usual 8.
The group stage
The 12 participating teams are divided into 3 groups (A, B, and C) of 4 teams each. This stage of the competition is played free-of-charge for everyone, with each team playing against all the other teams in its group (a total of 3 matches per team).
The teams that occupy the first and second places in each group and the third in the group stage qualify for the final stage. The remaining four teams no longer participate in the competition.
the final level
A draw will be taken after the group stage ends to determine the quarter-final pairs. The winners of the group (3 teams) and the team in second place with the best score (one team) from the group stage are placed in pot (D), while the remaining two teams occupy the second place and the two best teams in third place in another pot (E). Teams from the same group in the group stage cannot meet each other in the quarter-finals.
This phase of the competition is played by elimination and the draw will result in Olympic support for the path to the gold medal.
In order for a team to be crowned Olympic champion, it must play 6 matches: 3 in the group stage and 3 in the final stage (quarter-finals, semi-finals, gold match) instead of 8 matches as in previous tournaments.
