The final match was between NUST and Sir Syed University which was won by the latter.

A formal dinner for the finalists was arranged and they were sensitized regarding the importance of World Water Day and its message and were urged to take measures in their personal capacity and as an institution.

Meanwhile, a selfie contest was initiated for the wider audience to give social media coverage to the cause through which the students demonstrated their support by using the exclusive hashtag (#WaterforPakistan) for the event. Surveys were also conducted before and after the matches to gauge the willingness of the young people to pay for safe drinking water and various speeches were delivered to disseminate the World Water Day messages.
