Qualifying rounds will be held because it is not possible to organize a football championship where all countries participate. Depending on the number of registered countries two or three qualifying rounds are held. The best three countries per round (in case of two qualifying rounds) or the best two countries per round (in case of three qualifying rounds) qualify for the football finals. The current USIC champion and the hosting country qualify automatically for the football finals.
