Yangon Region team beat Kachin State team 2-1 in the final match. As both teams were advancing to the finals, they put pressure on each other and competed fiercely, but they did not score a goal until the end of the game, so they continued to play overtime. In the 4th minute of overtime, the Yangon Region team took the lead. Afterwards, the Kachin State team fought hard to regain the equalizer at the 24-minute mark.
In the penalty shootout, the Yangon Region team defeated the Kachin State team 3-2.
Next, an awarding ceremony was held, and officials presented cash awards plus medals to the best athletes, the fourth-placed Nay Pyi Taw Union Territory team, the third-placed Kayin State team, and the second-placed Kachin State team.
State Administration Council Joint Secretary Lt-Gen Ye Win Oo presented individual medals to the player of the Champion team, Yangon. The Senior General then congratulated the Yangon Region team, who won the first prize, presented them with a cash award and a pennant trophy, and greeted the athletes warmly.
