    OMG.... 1 mio per annum, and lock the location for consecutive 4 years ??


    I am guessing 2 countries =

    Qatar

    United Arab Emirates

    For sure these countries are rich, and have yet to develop badminton to its people.

    :D

    Seriously? 3 SS tournaments in a month??? Japan, Indonesia, and Australia. Hmm... interesting.

    But, I don't think the players would join 3 tournaments in a row. Maybe they just would join two of them. Indonesia SSP for sure is one of them.

    should be qatar because Dubai, UAE do have badminton association, Bahrain has jeffar Ibrahim...

    it's either qatar or Kuwait which has badminton association but Kuwait do have few players although not very good, qatar has none, maybe 2-3 players but it totally very beginner level, unless qatar decided to naturalized players like they did for football and basketball but I don't think they will do so

    i am working in Doha, qatar now, just completed qatar open, just for local, but the government/ association put lot of $$$ into this local tourny

    I forgot to ask this question: Does it mean that Youtube Channel will broadcast GPG events for free as they did with SS?

    From BWF Calendar 2014, I notice two new Int. Challenge tourneys in Asia : China IC (Beijing, 11-16 February) and Kazakhstan IC (Shymkent City, 8-11 May).

    Indeed, no update so far, can't find next year Badminton Asia Championships schedule & host city :D
