SCORING – GROUP STAGE: 3 pts for a win, 1 pt for a draw, 0 pts for a loss. Win defined as a winning percentage of 60% or more in the vote. Majority votes of under 60% to count in case of ties at end of group stage.

SCORING – KNOCKOUT STAGE: Simple majority in vote gets you through. In the event of a tie we’ll think of something.

There! Now who wants to be Sweden?
