Well, 8 days. The new format would be especially more interesting:

- The participants will be divided into 2 groups
- 5 rounds Swiss in each group
- Top 4 from each group qualify (total 8 programs)
- 2 rounds of quarter-final
- 2 rounds of semi-final
- 2 rounds of final

Thus, it will be more exciting, and less of a lottery. One single loss will
never prevent a program from winning the championship.

All the programs that lose in earlier stages (don't end up in top 4, or lose
later) continue competing for the other places. So all the programs will play
exactly 11 rounds.
