The registration day was very interactive, with many fun and engaging activities in which the students fully participated. Guest celebrities Fahad Sheikh and Zubab Rana were also invited to make the whole activity more enjoyable.

A lot of teams registered for the tournament. These teams came together on the competition day for the offline tournament happening at the university.
