    Today Singapore Newspaper (Strait Times) revealed that 2005 Singapore Open will be rated as 6 stars will be end of June to early July 2005. It was 5 stars rating until 2004 tournament.

    The same news also indicated that entry ticket fees will be reduced (30%) in order to attract more fans.

    Hope that 6 stars will attract more world class players :cool: and lesser entry fees will entice the more fans.:D

    6* or 5*

    Yes! It seems contraray to the news from the newspaper and from its official webpage. Nonetheless we will see it within a couple of months later.

    Thanks for bringing up the attention.

    A 6* Singapore Open

    well the report is quite confusing itself. reported on the straits times newspaper(our local newspaper) on saturday.british insurer aviva has announced a 3million sponsorship for the tournament until 2007.the move is likely to see the annual five star tournament upgraded to a six-star tournment boasting a minimum purse of us250,000 in 2007.ticek prices have also been cut as much as half from $15-$8.last year kids aged between 2-12 had to pay $10-12,this time they can watch for free.

    singapore indoor stadium
    june27-july3
    prize purse:us$170,000(s$279,000)
    tickets:adult $8-$10 adults
    students $4-$8
    under 12 free

    It will be 5 star event this year, and they are planning to upgrade it to 6 star next year. And AVIVA has signed the sponsorship for the next 3 years from 2005 to 2007

    What i found interesting was that the papers said it costs around 700,000 just to run the tournament. Never knew it was that expensive.

    So is it only the Purse that determines the rating of a tournament?
