Unbeaten #1 Universitas Gadjah Mada A (Alif Satria, Indriani Pratiwi, Romario Tambunan) will go against #2 Universitas Indonesia A (Magreta Kailla Adenta, Revaldi Wirabuana, Elvia Sumayastra) in the final of the 2014 Indonesian Varsities English Debate, the national 3-on-3 championship. Teams from the two state universities met in the 2011 IVED final that ended with the Yogyakarta school emerging as the victor. This year's finalists also clashed in the last preliminary round of IVED 2014, which had the same result as the 2011 final.
The UI debaters, however, are bent on settling the score and giving their school its ninth IVED victory. UI teams championed the first six IVEDs. The last time UI won was in 2008. UI teams fell in the final in the 3 most recent editions. UGM has two IVED trophies in its cabinet. UI, which hosted the first IVED in 1998, will organize the country's most prestigious tournament for the second time next year.
In the final of the novice category, Universitas Jenderal Soedirman A (Dendi Liya, Chrisna Gilang, Shella Aliandri) will face Perguruan Tinggi Teknokrat B (Zahra Mutiah, Timotius Immanuel, Yurisa Yulia Yunara). All finals will take place tomorrow at Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana in Salatiga.
