​​​​​​​Penalty shoot-outs will only be played for quarter final, semi final and finals matches. Other matches, including for playoffs for other positions will be based on pool play finishing positions. This is to minimise any delays impacting on later games.

Safety on the Turf: it is strongly recommended that face masks are worn by defenders on Penalty Corners.
