New Tournament Structure

20 July 2006



IBF will introduce a new tournament structure for its grand prix events.




"It was a very difficult task to award the Super Series to 12 organizers," said Paisan Rangsikitpho, Events Committee Chairman. The decision was made to award the Super Series to England (All England), China, Denmark, France, Hong Kong China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and Switzerland. China is expected to host two events, China Open and China Masters.


"With this new tournament structure, we intend to promote badminton at a higher level among other sports in the world. These events are expected to generate more prize money as we plan to package them as a group of events for marketing, thereby raising more funds and attracting more top class and professional players. We will also have a fixed tournament calendar giving players, sponsors and TV producers time to make their respective plans in advance," Paisan added.
