    your point is well taken. it's another aspect to the system. but, if you run the #'s & $'s it's still a tough road from a team's $ point of view.

    let's say a team sends 10 to 20 athletes to a ss/p tournament and they all flame out early, before 1/4's. obviously a financial loss. even if 1 wins, is it enough to cover the whole team/staff expenses? (air, lodging, food, etc.) not by much. lcw certainly isn't making enough to pay for the rest of the team's current state of sucking, haha!

    now picture the big teams entering gp & gp gold level, which you have to do in order to work your way up to ss/p level. you end up entering a lot of gp/gold level. they are a money loser over 99% of the time. this is why athletes will sometimes have no coaches present, to save $. 10-15 athletes traveling in pursuit of way lower prize money. singles winner makes $9,000. scary, eh? someone better win to offset the team's cost of making the trip!

    by the time an athlete has reached ss/p level they haven't won enough money to cover the costs of getting them to the ss/p level. so, yes, you want to get there asap but 99% of them will never recoup the association's total investment in their career.

    http://system.bwf.website/documents... - ANNEXURE A DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZE MONEY.pdf
    [it's the same distribution for gp/gold]

    if you look at the $ breakdown tables you wonder how teams make $. well, they don't. they are supported by local companies & gov't. i guess you could say the athletes are employees of non-profit organizations.

    what about the team's/players that don't get gov't/corporate help? exactly. you can only name a few. and they are barely making a living.

    I think its the year that is more important to stay injury free more than anything.

    Can see in 2017 there are many injures especially in XD. By the end of the year, many WS also on the brink of injuries it feels. and we dont want Srikanth or Axelsen that are missing tournaments because they are still young. They are not as old as LD LCW CL.

    I always think if they name it WorldTour, arent they basically making it like tennis?

    Wouldnt it be more prudent to make it 8 important tournaments and 7 tournaments SS-equivalent (becomes redundant) in future by branding?
    So, they should add more to the SSP equivalent to make it like its ATP1000 event ( which has 9 tournaments instead of 5 here) since 3 PoP is like GrandSlam.

    Many questions be answered.

    A quote from Guangzhou Sports Council:

    "五是培育品牌扩大影响。继续办好广州马拉松赛、广州国际女子网球公开赛、广州国际龙舟邀请赛等以广州命名的国际体育赛事。积极筹办2017—2022年国际攀联中国攀岩公开赛、2019年男篮世界杯赛,积极申办2018—2021年世界羽联世界巡回赛年终总决赛。加大对职业体育俱乐部建设运营的支持力度,做好主场比赛的组织协调和服务工作。大力支持发展户外运动、健身跑(走)、自行车、水上运动、攀岩、极限运动等群众喜闻乐见的项目。"

    Looks like they're bidding for SSF 2018-2021...

    That TUC logo has been there since early December as far as I remember

    Basel 2019 also has released theirs, now only Nanjing and Nanning.. Usually they will have the meaning behind the logos, and if I'm not mistaken China also held a design competition for Dongguan 2015.

    Supposed to be Shenzen but commitment to have SS Final is so expensive..... minimum the organizer needs to spend at least $4 million, remember lodging and flights are covered

    Would you have information (or source links) like costs breakdown? I've always wondered why bwf prize monies are so low relative to tennis, since the 4mil per event sponsor fee is quite hefty.......... Thanks

    Danish players does NOT get any salary from the Danish Federation. They get free practice and a small amount of travel subsidy. Typically around 5.000 €

    I'll have to rewatch axelsen's videos. I thought he refered to something about a small amount of pay.
    court time, coaching, physio, supplies: How much of each? the value can add up substantially.
    receiving any kind of subsidy (money and/or services) on a continuing basis is the equivalent of receiving a salary. just ask all the players around the world whom don't receive jack sh*t from their federation, :D

    over 4 years, not $4m each year.
    it's more of a who pays for what because the cost of expenses are not equal around the world. ie: suitable venues are a lot cheaper in asia than north america.

    title sponsor pays for certain things, host organizer pays for certain things, bwf pays for certain things.

    if i can find the time i'll break it down...
