One of biggest breakthroughs for the fest came in 2016 with the participation of an international university; The Royal University of Bhutan took participation this year competing with the Indian universities on the grounds establishing an international affiliation and team work between the cultures.

In the past year a week before Petrocup, Pre-Petrocup events were organized to channelize the enthusiasm and energy of the students into the right direction. These events were held just around the eve of the main competitions which helped the sports committee members and the high-on-sports crowd relax and refresh amidst all the work. Also, the Pre-Petrocup events helped in creating a buzz about Petrocup and in putting the campus into a sportive mood ahead of the spectacle that waited.

The events that were held were Dog and the bone, Tug of War, Footloose, Dodge ball and Futsal. The participants reminisced playing these games in their childhood. With everyone in the campus allowed to participate, the events saw healthy attendance and high spirits between the competitors.

Every year as the fest turns towards its end, the sports committee organizes a closing ceremony and honours all those individuals as well as teams who have shown exceptional sportsmanship in their game.

The faculties were called on stage to felicitate the winners with certificates and medals. They were also given gift vouchers provided by the sponsors of Petrocup'16. PDPU was announced the Overall Winner of PetroCup’16.

PetroCup’16 was officially concluded with the hope that PetroCup grows bigger and better every forthcoming year and the blaze of glory burns brighter.

So, everyone tie your seatbelts, grab your hoodies, gather your friends and start supporting your contingent, cheer for your favourites and play hard to get to the top and grab the trophy!

“When you put on that jersey, the name on the front is more important than the name on the back.”
