Finals Series[edit]

CNPS from the first semi-final were unable to attend the first-semi final and was replaced by Blue Cactus on the 26th March 2019. Since their placement from the completion of the group stage was not in the top four, but played in the semi-final match, their placement for the tournament is now 3-4th. [8]
