    Regrettably, there is still no SS stop in North America.

    BWF World Superseries Heading ‘Down Under’

    Friday, November 30, 2012 - Text by Gayle Alleyne
    Australia and Malaysia were today celebrating successful bids to host events in the Badminton World Federation’s (BWF) World Superseries 2014-2017 tournament cycle.
    While the Malaysia Open is already part of the ongoing OSIM BWF World Superseries, it graduates from a World Superseries event to the more prestigious World Superseries Premier level. Four current hosts of top-tier World Superseries Premier events – China (Guangzhou bid), Denmark, England and Indonesia – retained their status following deliberations by the BWF Council in Bangkok, Thailand. Australia, on the other hand, joins badminton’s elite circuit for the first time as one of seven World Superseries events, ushering the Oceania confederation into the World Superseries fold as a host. Australia – which had bid for the World Superseries Premier level – currently stages a Grand Prix Gold tournament (the level below World Superseries) in April. The other six World Superseries hosts for the four-year period are: France, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea and Singapore. The five top-tier World Superseries Premier tournaments promise to be more lucrative campaigns for winners, each with minimum prize money of US$500,000 (2014; 2015); US$550,000 (2016); and US$600,000 (2017). This is a significant boost from US$350,000 for 2011 and 2012 and US$400,000 for next season. World Superseries prize money will start at US$250,000 in 2014, rising as follows: US$275,000 (2015); US$300,000 (2016); US$325,000 (2017). Meanwhile, China was not awarded two tournaments on this occasion as obtained previously and Chinese Taipei and Thailand were not successful with their bids. However, Thailand will have the honour of staging next year’s BWF World Junior Championships. BWF Deputy President Paisan Rangsikitpho noted the World Juniors is an important tournament which has given badminton future stars. Among these are Olympic Men’s Singles gold medallist Lin Dan (World Juniors semi-finalist in 2000) and more recently Wang Zhengming, Victor Axelsen, Saina Nehwal, Lee Yong Dae, Tai Tzu Ying and the pride of all Thailand – Ratchanok Intanon.

    Did Australia actually offer $750K in prize money for 2014? If true, even SSP can be had, let alone SS.

    Yes, I read that prize amount in the news. They bid for SSP so of course they will put a high prize money. Glad that bwf, while keeping just 5 premier, decided that those that bid SSP will get to host SS when they are not given the premier. So Australia get SS.

    So the question is whether they still give that prize money even though they don't get the premier status.

    I understand that Li YB has said the tournament calendar is overcrowded with too many SS events plus others such as TUC, Sudirman, National,Regional(Asian Games),Leagues(Axiata,CBSL). And next year China is holding their National Games, a multi-sport event where all the nation's athletes have to take part, a major occasion to them. I guess that's why they aren't too keen to hold two SS tourneys as on home soil, their top players will be obliged to play even though they can skip two of the seven SS but not any of the 5 PSS.

    Anyway, I'm happy that Australia get to hold one. A good start to boost badminton Down Under.

    Yes,I'm aware of that. Just that they'll have to plan ahead to forestall the problem in future.The CBSL is an annual affair lasting about three months and a few of their players were injured in the league. There's also the TUC2014 as well as the WC'14.

    Partly my ambiguity by talking about the CHN National Games next year.

    player should know their priority.
    if they think cbsl is more important,then just participate in cbsl(or the coming ibl)
    no point complain about the international schedule.

    Or all other badminton tournaments should stop because cbsl is on.
