The team who are called The Brain Kids took on the equally impressive team known as the ZJUDancer, who ironically came from the host country China where they attend Zhejan University. The Brain Kids beat the team by only scoring one point but it was enough to reign victorious over their rivals who left the competition not scoring once.

The RoboCup competition is similar to that of the game of football. However, this year the RoboCup up the game rules by making the game even more challenging for its competitors. The new challenges led to some teams such as the one from the UK known as the Bold Hearts to be eliminated from the competition early on.

They even hope that one day they could be able to have a competition where robots take on human in a football match.
