The five age groups are independent groups, comprising of the participating teams. On matchday 1 and 2 of the tournament, several games came close to a nail-biting ending, whereas others concluded with one side dominating the proceedings. Here is a complete group viz. summary from the two days of Somaiya Football Championship:
The U8 category is played in a festival format, where there are modified rules. There is no competition and all the players are welcomed every week to engage in fun activities apart from Football.
