Four teams will be seeded according to the S.B.L. 2009 final results, i.e. Dream Team, M.I.B., H.F.C. and Trojans will be seeded if they take part, and assigned to be Team A to D randomly. If not all the first four teams is going to play, the next team in the order (see below) will be assigned as a seeded team.

The other eight potential teams will be decided by lottery if all other ten current S.B.L. teams want to take part.

3. Format and Application

The event is a double-elimination tournament. In short, one team will be out only when they lose twice. The teams having lost twice will play in game(s) to decided an overall standing (at least three games will be played by each team, in other words).
