Former Indian football captain Bhaichung Bhutia, who graced the final at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) Football Ground in Guwahati, presented the winners with the prestigious trophy.
Manipur was pitted against the Meghalaya Masters in both the age group title deciders.
The league, which began on September 26, witnessed matches between 246 teams from clubs and schools. Over 2700 players displayed their skillset and passion in the tournament.
Bhutia praised the league, saying, “It’s my pleasure to be associated with Sunfeast Cup which is promoting and nurturing football talent at the grassroot level.
