The venue of the event, Sarath Stadium has
undergone a massive renovation with many new facilities added and is all
geared to play host to the event. The defending champion team from Rifle
Factory Ishapore, Kolkata will be looking forward to retain its supremacy
but is likely to have tough competition from Ordnance Factory Itarsi,
Ordnance Factory Bolangir and the host Ordnance Factory Medak who are
vying to regain their past glory of 8 championships during the 1990s.
It may be noted that Ordnance Factory Medak is hosting the event after a gap of 21 years, earlier way back in 1991 it hosted the event. The factory management under the leadership of its General Manager Shri V.K. Panda, has left no stone unturned to make the event a grand success.
The meet also promises intense competition among various athletes for champion Athletic trophy presently held by Shri Tarit Singh Roy of Ordnance Factory Board. It will be a treat to watch the meet on all three days.
