Teachers vs students cricket match
This is an old tradition of Faisalabad Medical University where a week before the annual sports day teachers of this institute take on the university team. This event has evolved over the recent years so that classes dress up in different colours and decorate their portions of the stadium.
This event marks the end of the sports season in Faisalabad Medical University. Prizes are distributed to the winners of sports competitions. Other events include the 100m sprint, the teachers race, and musical chairs. Students dress in costumes, and classes decorate the stands in themes. Groups or classes sometimes make a dramatic entry into the stadium.
This is an unofficial activity mainly conducted by the outgoing class of the year. The students attend university in different costumes according to the UN & WHO Health Days. This trend was freshly introduced by MBBS Class of 2011-2016.
