The actual KO seed order will be based on a combination of original seed position and Round Robin finish position, as well as some random shuffles after the qualifiers for the Round of 8 are known. After the Round Robin, each team's Round Robin position will be added to double the team's original seed position to obtain the team's KO "seed position." The teams will be ranked in order of seed position. The teams will then be placed into the Knockout bracket as follows: The team ranked 1 will be #1. The team ranked 2 will be #2. The teams ranked 3 & 4 will be randomly assigned to #3 and #4. The teams ranked 5 & 6 will be randomly assigned to #5 and #6. The teams ranked 7 & 8 will be randomly assigned to #7 and #8.
