Mens tournament is played with 16 teams. Teams are divided into 2 groups based on ranking from previous tournament. New entries are randomly drawn into the ranking after teams that have participated in past tournament. As IFAF Executive Board accepted late entry from Kuwait to the tournament, the ranking were adjusted based on that decision so that host Sweden accepted to change its ranking with Kuwait.

Group games will be played in round robin format, where all teams in group play against each other. Group games will take place on Thursday and Friday.

Placement games

Two top teams (A1,A2,B1,B2) from each group will advance to semifinals from where the winners will meet in the championship final and losers will play for the bronze medals.

The next two teams in each group (A3,A4,B3,B4) will play for spots 5-8 in round robin format.

The next two teams in each group (A5,A6, B5,B6) will play for places 9-12 also in round robin format.

The last teams (A7,A8,B7,B8) will play for places 13-16 in round robin format.

Because Israel is given a break for Saturday due to Sabbath, if Israel is playing in any of the round robin format placement games, the game between the two teams from group A will not be replayed in round robin, but the result taken from group phase will count here as well.

Placement games for places 5-16 will be played on Saturday besides Israel games that will be played on Sunday. Semifinals and medal games are played on Sunday.
