The competition of the World Team Cup will be carried out in the TK-5 modality, the same used in the recent SportAccord Combat Games in St. Petersburg, Russia with great success, so it is expected that this modality continues to increase.
The process to select the countries to participate in this edition was the following:
- The top ten teams in the 2013 World Championships in Puebla. If the host country is within the top ten or if of the guests canceled their participation, the place would be awarded to the best place.
- The host country´s team
- A team recommended by each Continental Union.
- In case of a team recommended by a Continental Union cannot attend, the WTF would have the right to replace it.

- 1st place: 40 points
- 2nd place: 24 points
- 3eros places: 14.4 points
