    • Championship game – undefeated (i.e., “winner’s bracket”) team has choice
    • If Necessary – coin toss winner has choice
      Overall pool seeds from completed pool play will be used for choice of home/visitor in bracket.

If a tournament must be reverted to single elimination format where both teams in the championship game are undefeated, choice will be awarded to the higher seed from pool play (if one exists).
