Traditionally, players are required to compete in two matches prior to singles matches. Nevertheless, there is a new format change in play this season. It dictates that each Presidents Cup team player must play a minimum of at least one game before the singles matches.

Every game is worth a point. So, the total points are up to 30. There are no playoffs here. So, if the match closes in the tie after 18, each side will receive half a point. However, if both teams are tied at the end of the singles matches – it's a draw and the teams share the Presidents Cup.
