Total 21 Teams are participating this year, against last years 18 teams. This time FITAG has also included six new associations in the state forum. From these newly added associations Disa, Mundra and Mandvi are participating in this event.

The teams are supported by global brands including HP, D-Link, Asus and Indian brands like Zebronics, Enjay IT solutions. Bluemax is the title sponsor.

“IT business has slowed down because of online portals. For this purpose we are supporting the national IT association FAIITA. The Gujarat association’s sports event always plays a key role to get the partners united at one place. If we are together we can solve all the problems,” Patel concluded.
