Earlier, president of Nagaland Contractors and Suppliers Union, Pele Khezhie said that despite numerous talents, the state is lacking behind from almost all the states of India in many disciplines especially in the field of football. He said that it has been almost 70 years since Lt. Dr T.Ao led the national team as captain in 1948 Olympics and yet the state has failed to produce a player to represent the country in football.

However, he hoped that the league would produce many good players in the years to come. He also encouraged the other districts to follow the same in order promote talents. 

The closing ceremony was led by organising committee secretary, Vikholie Yiese. There was special presentation by IV NAP Jazz band Thizama, Kohima and Taekwondo demonstration.
