In the final, Joint Registrar (Finance), JU, Dr Dharminder Magotra was chief guest, who witnessed the second half of the play and presented the title trophy to PG team amidst cheers from the spectators. He was accompanied by Director Sports, Dr Daud Iqbal Baba and Physical Director GDC Hirangar, Vikram Jamwal and PTI Campus, Raj Kumar.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Magotra told the gathering of players and students that JU has taken a number of initiatives to strengthen the sports infrastructure on the campus.
