The Classification Games determine the final ranking of the teams (17th to 32nd) and play a crucial role in Olympic qualification. The top-ranking teams from different regions will earn spots for the 2024 Olympics, alongside wild card entries. Despite not advancing to the second round, teams like Japan and several African nations still have the opportunity to secure a place in the Paris 2024 Olympics by performing well in the Classification Round.
