There are 8 groups of 4 teams each, for a total of 32 teams. Every team will play every team in their group once resulting in 6 matches per group. 8 * 6 = 48 total matches …in group play The two highest point earners in each group advance, for a total of 16 teams advancing. Each time a match is played, one of the 16 is eliminated, so 15 more matches must be played to determine a winner. 48 matches in group play + 15 matches in elimination = 63 matches total
