Mohammedan Sporting topped the Group B at Mukalmua and they will meet BSF which became runners-up of Group A held at Dibrugarh.

On the other hand, Oil India took the top spot in Group A and they will take on TRAU – the runners-up team of Mukalmua group.

Notably, this is first time in the history of the Bordoloi Trophy, that the organizers Guwahati Sports Association, and Directorate of Sports and Youth Affairs, Government of Assam have organized the group league matches of the championship at Dibrugarh and Mukalmua.

It may be recalled that way back in the 1990s, the organisers had hosted some of the matches at Mirza.

As many as eight teams took part in this year’s edition of the premiere football tournament of the region.

The eight teams were divided in two groups.

After the round-robin league phases, the top two teams qualified to play in the knock-out semifinals.

The final will be played on November 8 and the kick-off time is 5 pm.
