The match was played between the teams of PAF and GB Scouts.

Players from both sides showed extraordinary skill but no team could score a goal within the stipulated time. Therefore the fate of the match lay with the penalty shootout, where Shahryar from team PAF scored the only goal of the match leading to their victory.

The history of ice hockey in the GB region can be traced to a local game ghatal, which is also played with two sticks and a ball.
