Draw

The 9 participating teams will be drawn into three groups. In preparation for this, the teams were organised into three pots with the two highest-ranked teams joining host nation Posaf in Pot 1. Each pot was organized by rankings from the past two MOF Games with unseeded Iustus, and Nova-Occitania in the last pot with eleventh seeded, Arbreland. The draw is set to be uploaded to YouTube on July 6, EDT at 12:00 PM that day, with a small MOF history piece at the end from the 2018 MOF Games.[3]

For the draw, the Posafian Olympic Committee decided a draw format of consecutively picking one nation from every pot to make one group. Starting with selecting a nation from Pot 1, then Pot 2, and Pot 3 to make a group, rather than the traditional FIFA World Cup process.
