Matches do not qualify for timeouts, except for medal matches, where both teams have the opportunity to hold a 30-second timeout within the normal game time. In the matches where the winner has to be found, a penalty shoot-out contest with three shots will be performed in a straightforward manner. If after three shootout shots per team the situation is still tied, we will then move to the individual shooters. The same shooter can only be used after all the field players of the team have gone through a penalty shootout.
A player can represent only one team in the tournament.
