The annual tournament, organized by Army Football Federation, chaired by Brigadier H D W Kariyawasam was contested by 19 Regiments, including two teams of the Sri Lanka Army Women’s Corps Regiments.

Championship award was presented to the winners by the Chief Guest Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya, Commander of the Army at the conclusion of the tournament. Separate trophies were awarded to the Best Goalkeeper (men) and Best Player (men) by Commander of the Army.  

Chief of Staff together with the Deputy Chief of Staff gave away trophies to the Best Player and the Best Goalkeeper of the women teams and others.
