Congratulations to the 2018 PetroBowl® Champions, UNAM SPE Student Chapter!






It was a loud and passionate final match for the 2018 PetroBowl® Championship at ATCE. Ultimately, the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) SPE student chapter won the 2018 PetroBowl championship, defeating the Lousiana State University team.

This is the fourth year in a row that a team from Latin America has won the Petrobowl® Championship. UNAM previously won in 2017 and 2015, and the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro won in 2016. Before 2015, all winning teams came from American Universities.
