The format of the Football Frontier in Inazuma Eleven Ares no Tenbin is different. Teams are sorted into blocks of 16. Each team plays 6 matches against teams in their block, each match being against a different team. The 6 opponents for a team are randomly generated. The top two teams in each block advance past the qualifiers. If two teams are tied in terms of wins and losses, the difference is determined by how many goals have been scored by each team.
