2018 edition

In the first two editions in 2002 and 2004 only one team qualified for the World Cup, thus a final was played. From 2006 onwards the confederation was granted a second spot, so all following tournaments were played in a knock-out format only to the semi finals. All matches are played on a home and away system, there is no host country for the single years.
