There will be 8 professional teams, as well as 16 A-Series qualificants from Europe, which  will be invited to join the tournament.

After the 1st round, when only 8 A-Series teams are left, the 8 professional teams will join in the cup, following a similar best-of-1 series. 4 cups will take place, with the finals of each cup being a best-of-3 series.
