According to the tournament organizer, even on Sunday, the attendance was only 60% to 70%, with half of them on free tickets. ShenZhen is fairly well off city with a large badminton population. It is also conveniently located for domestic and international visitors. If SSF fares so poorly in ShenZhen, the future of SSF does not look good. BWF should seriously consider cancelling this event. A gala dinner plus some promotional activities may work better.
