Depends on what we're going to play. Eventually, we'll want some kind of elimination - that'll require a power of 2 of teams, as of the 32 teams starting there'll be 16 left in the next round, then 8, then 4, then 2, then 1. Although we probably won't start that way, it might be 4 groups of 8 teams with the best 4 of each advancing to the elimination round, starting at 16. But there's no need to take the best 4 out of 8 - it could be 4 out of 10 advancing as well, allowing for 40 teams.
