South Africa will be in Pool B alongside USA, Mexico and Japan. With India, Poland, Russia and Uzbekistan competing in Pool A.

The top team from each pool progresses to the Semi-Finals directly while the teams in 2nd and 3rd play a crossover Quarter Final.

Matt Brown, who is lethal at penalty corner time, will get the opportunity to earn his first cap for his country.
