At the end of the qualifying round, the top two teams in each group and the two best third-placed teams qualified for the elite round. The elite round, held from 13 March to 31 March 2008, divided the remaining 28 teams into seven groups of four. At the end of the round, the top team in each group advanced to the final tournament.
