Defending Champions Mahur Milan Sangh, Amukta Pariwar, Apex FC and United Sikkim were clubbed in Group A while Royal FC, Kanchanjunga FC, United Kurseoong FC and Share FC from Kalimpong were clubbed in Group B
Defending champions Madhur Milan Sangh once again cruised their way into the semi-finals with 5 wins and a draw.Ganesha Limboo so far has turned out to be a very successful addition to the team scoring a total of 6 goals.
Apex FC from Kalimpong were the 2nd team from group A to reach the semis but their ride to the semis was as bumpy as it could get. They won 2 matches, lost 2 and drew 2 earning a total of 8 points from 6 games. A special mention about their goalkeeper Kilon Subba has to be made as he wowed the spectators all the time with his acrobatic saves and lightening reflexes.
Amukta Pariwar and United Sikkim FC both failed to make it to the semis. Amukta Pariwar earned a total of 5 points off 6 matches with 1 win, 2 draw and 3 losses while United Sikkim FC earned a total of 4 points off 6 matches with 1 win, 1 draw and 4 losses.

Royal FC is the 2nd team from Group B to reach the semis. Coach Nakul Roy´s gamble to bring Sameer Tamang to first 11 paid off as he scored the sole match winning goal against UKFC and another stunner against Share FC in their final group stage match. They secured 10 points off 6 matches with 3 wins, 2 losses and a draw.
Share FC and UKFC are the two teams from Group B to exit the tournament. Share FC although had a fiery start lost their momentum on the way ending their campaign with 2 wins and 4 losses while UKFC managed to secure 6 points from 6 matches with 1 win, 3 draws and 2 losses.
