The main different to this year edition is the participant of new  teams like - Jabatan Pelajaran Wilayah Persekutuan (JPWP), Universiti Malaya (UM) and Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN). This has change the scenario of the tournaments which is usually dominate by DBKL and KASTAM. This year, KASTAM was squeeze into third place by " the teachers" .
