    Madrid will host the 2006 IBF World Championships

    Bid Cities: Madrid will host the 2006 IBF World Championships

    Madrid, May 9th 2004

    The 65th Annual General Meeting of the International Badminton Federation (IBF), held at the Jakarta Convention Centre (Indonesia), has decided that the city of Madrid will host the 2006 IBF World Championships. The Spanish city beat Aarhus (Denmark) for this championship, which will be staged on August of that year. Madrid –in the running for the 2012 Olympic Games- will also host Archery, Taekwondo and Cycling World Championships in 2005 and Fieldhockey Women World Cup in 2006.

    Just a little disappointed with the choice being in Europe again. I'm wondering what the strategic direction of the World Championships is. Perhaps the Seville one generated a lot of interest and IBF are trying to build on that.

    Another theory would be IBF moving to KL makes badminton drift towards Asia too much. The World Championships in Europe or USA is an attempt to balance this out.

    The World Championship is indeed going to be held in Madrid, Spain in September 06.
    The country and venue of the World Junior Championship in July 06 is still to be announced.

    i agree with you. It could be just another All England. Never seen a world championship for a same event being held 2 years in a row.

    Rowing + Snooker have their world championships every year, am sure there are many more examples.

    I am warming to the idea now after being initially opposed.

    I predict that at this tournament, Youngsters like Chen Jin/Pei Wei Chung/Lim Kenn will come into their full potential. Mark my words :D

    My guess after searching is..

    My guess is they will hold it at IFEMA exhibition park of Madrid, the proposed venue where they are supposed to have had it, if Spain would've gotten the bid for 2012..

    Here's the link and under Related Sections, select a sport -> Badminton. Then after that, you will see a small pop-up and click on the Installation link...Once there, you will see the description and location of the place, which is located on Parque Juan Carlos I, No. 1, Madrid, Barajas...I believe they held the 2001 World Individual Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships and 2001 Tennis Federation Cup

    Venue of 2006 IBF World Championship

    Update,
    It will be held at Palacio de los Deportes, Madrid, Spain from September 18th-24th

    Looks like it will be the same play format like the one held in Anaheim. With 4 events on the Finals being held on Sunday.

    Season-ticket package starts at 150.00 EUR = 183.441 USD (highest price)
    to 60.00 EUR = 73.3643 USD (lowest price)

    coming to a court near you...
    Firstly, the selected location is probably in line with IBF's globalization strtegy. Secondly, I suspect the IBF is trying to appease the Olympic head honchos to keep the sport in the schedule.

    Hmm...i doubt Spain would have won the bid to host the WC if it was known that London would win the bid.I think the IBF awarded the WC to Madrid coz it was a bid city. i would think Aarhus[Denmark] would make a better venue.Anyway i just hope that they do a lot prior to the WC and ensure a build up atleast this time..especially since it's in Spain.


    ctjcad,is the venue made solely for Badminton?
    BTW,are u gonna be an LO there?
