In the Group I the Thousand Emirates played traditional offensive battlegame and frequently attempted to capture the flag and risked heavily which led to interesting matches with high results. Samraj, West Asian champions of the 10th cycle, were unbeatable however. But Bombay was very close to scoring a draw against Samraj.

Group IJ

No decisive victories and few succesful goals or liquidations happened in the matches of Group IJ. Sikh RS was considered to be the worst team but this team (which is always liked by the fans due to the uniforms with turbans) managed to secure draws with Armenia and Sind and defeat Turkey and went to the playoffs. Sind's loss to Turkey in the last match meant that Turkey would become the second team advanicing to playoffs from this group.

Sind-Armenia 3:2
Armenia-Turkey 1:3
Sikh RS-Sind 4:4
