All the best to the 16 college teams competing in the inaugural Finale and I look forward to working together with MOGO to bring more events at the collegiate level.” 

With more than 100 teams signing up to compete, the MOGO National Championship had a demanding qualifying round. To ensure regional coverage among Indian colleges, the qualifiers were divided into four groups: West, South, North, and Central.
