The hundreds of eager players registered to participate in various strategic, action, and multiplayer games like NFS Most Wanted, FIFA 2019, Counter-Strike Global Offensive, DOTA 2, PUBG Mobile, and Beat Saber, a Virtual Reality (VR) game, in partnership with Club G1 IT and AORUS.

The campus was overwhelmed by a crowd of enthusiastic participants at the Opening Ceremony for the event on the 5th of December 2019, which was inaugurated by the Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Carmen Z. Lamagna, and the Founding Member & Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Ms. Nadia Anwar, together.
