Round 1 is played in the form of mini-tournaments with single-leg semi-finals, a single-leg final and a 3rd-place match, hosted by one of the participating clubs. If a mini-tournament is played with three teams, the team with the highest coefficient is seeded directly to the final while the two remaining teams play a single-leg tie to determine the other finalist. In all cases, if the score is equal at the end of normal time, two 15-minute periods of extra time are played. If one of the teams scores more goals than the other during extra time, that team is declared the winner. If the score is still equal after extra time, the winner is determined by kicks from the penalty mark (see Paragraph 21.03 to Paragraph 21.04). The provisions of Paragraph 21.01 do not apply to round 1. The winner of the final qualifies for round 2.
