As winter sets in, things in Ashoka will start to heat up with the beginning of Agneepath 2.0 on November 3rd. The competition is set to be intense in our annual intercollegiate sports fest with 16 colleges and 9 clubs taking part in the tournament over 3 days.

Notable colleges to watch out are the Delhi University colleges such as Aurobindo, Venkateshwar, Hindu and Ramjas as well as Ashoka University’s classic rivals Jindal Global University and Shiv Nadar University. Agneepath 2.0 sees the addition of squash in its list of sports, along with basketball, football, volleyball, table tennis and badminton. Ashoka University took many of the top spots in the last edition of Agneepath and will aim to retain the success, and hopefully improve upon their effort this time around as well.

On November 3rd, Ashoka kicks off the fest by playing a football match against ISBF at 10:30 AM. The venues for the events are the squash courts, football field, cricket field, the basketball courts near the dhaba and swimming pool, the multi-purpose hall in the sports block as well as the table tennis room in the sports block.

The home ground advantage gives Ashokan teams a chance to win it all, and a major part of this advantage will be the crowds. So get out of your room people and support your college team in their quest for gold.
