Note: The team that leads the standings after week 5 earns a bid and the right to host the World Bowl. The team which has the best overall record at the end of the season also qualifies for the World Bowl. If the host team also leads the standings after the second half of the season, the club with the second-best overall record qualifies for the World Bowl.
