Speaking about the event, FITIS Hardware Chapter President Sudath Amarasinghe said, “This year, the Hardware Chapter of FITIS organised the Annual Cricket Championship for the ICT industry for the 12th time. This is a very popular event organised by the FITIS.
More than 100 teams and 7,000 visitors are attracted for the Cricket Championship every year. It was a more glamorous event with the ICT Queen Contest, DJ music giving greater enjoyment for the visitors and participants this time facilitating more networking opportunities among the ICT industry peers.
I sincerely thank all the sponsors and partners who came forward to support this industry endeavour.”
