Here’s the complete field divided by their respective groups (via EA):
All four players play everyone in their group with a win worth three points, a draw worth two, and a loss worth zero. The top two players in each group advance to the double-elimination Knockout Round.
After both knockout tournaments are down to the finalists from each console, the winner of the Xbox One field will take on the winner of the PlayStation 4 bracket in a two-leg final with one fixture on Xbox One and one on PS4.
After both matches, the player with the higher aggregate score from the two is crowned the champion. If the aggregate score is tied, the player with more goals scored on their “non-native” platform (e.g. “away goals”) is the winner. If the match remains tied on “away goals”, a golden-goal third match will be played on the same platform as the second game and the winner decided by the first to score.
