It started with an amazing video documentary of each major’s preview and the committee’s effort in making this event happen. The line of President University Major Association (PUMA) representatives with the major’s flag in their grasp, completed the opening ceremony. This amazing concept came from the amazing ideas of its committee and most important the project manager, Anthony Emmanuel. He did not lose hope to make SOPU 2021 lit, especially as we know that SOPU 2020 was stopped because of COVID-19. Later on, the torch of SOPU 2019 was ignited by the vice project manager of SOPU 2021, Anastasia Dyah Gayatri, thus the competition began.

The online competition took 18 days to be finished. The first week started with a couple of e-sport matches such as Chess.com, Stumble Guys, Mobile Legend, DOTA 2, and Point Blank.
