A one-day e-sports event, the championship features a FIFA tournament for single players, and a DOTA 2 tournament for teams.

Fairtrade is an international movement that gives people the opportunity to make a difference to those who grow their food and clothes through their everyday choices. It’s about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers. Fairtrade aims to enable the poorest farmers and workers to improve their position and have more control over their lives. In India, we have over 139,000 Fairtrade producers growing everything from coffee and tea, to rice, spices and cotton.
