Kuala Lumpur: The Badminton World Federation (BWF) laid out an ambitious plan Friday to resume its season in the second week of August.

BWF planned to resume play with 2020 Hyderabad Open as the first tournament on the schedule, followed by Lingshui China Masters that was originally scheduled to take place from 25 February to 1 March 2020 but was postponed by BWF following the COVID-19 pandemic in China.

The 2020 Malaysia Open has been pushed back to 24-29 November while the World Tour Finals have been pushed back by a week to 16-20 December.

YONEX Swiss Open 2020 (17-22 March)
2020 European Championships (21-26 April)
