BWF announces host countries of major badminton events for 2019-2025

"The process that BWF went through with all hosts has been a very productive and new experience but also left BWF with very difficult considerations on some very good and long-term bids," said BWF secretary general Thomas Lund.

Kuala Lumpur: The Badminton World Federation (BWF) has awarded several countries to host major badminton events for the period 2019-2025.

China benefited the most from the announcement made by BWF president Poul-Erik Hoyer Larsen on Thursday, with the right to host 2024 Thomas and Uber Cup, 2021 and 2025 Sudirman Cup, and 2021 World Junior Championships.

Commenting on awarding of this series of major badminton events, Larsen told reporters that the decision was in line with BWF’s vision to establish long-term goals to broaden its development initiatives and to create a strategic position for the sport around new projects and partnerships.

“We were lucky to receive some outstanding bids, all with the same forward-thinking vision as us.”

“Following an exhaustive assessment period, we were able to determine the host cities and countries that best represented the interests of the sport,” added Larsen who was also the men’s singles champion in the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics.
