Canada, originally the No. 2 seed, withdrew from the event earlier this month. Teams that would have been scheduled to play Canada within the tournament format will receive byes.
If the Australian Outback can win the opening game against South Korea they will take on the winner of the France vs. Brazil if they lose that game they will play the loser of the France and Brazil match up.
The tournament format is pretty simple, for Australia to make it to the Gold Medal Game they must win all their matches during the tournament.
