Best Answer

A final requires just 2 teams

A semifinal requires 4 teams (the 2 wining trams make it to the final)

A quarter final must deliver 4 teams to compete in the semi final and thus there need to be 8 teams competing - no more, no less.

This is true for ALL "finals" of two team sports, no matter how large the competition.
