[QUOTE=huangkwokhau;2035073]It seems that the city of SYDNEY funded this tournament[/QUOTE
Destination NSW (New South Wales) sponsored the Aussie bid. They're a government organization that promotes tourism in Sydney and NSW.

Got this from the Jakarta Globe (May 3, 2013 edition):
Indonesian cigarette company Djarum announced that it will end its sponsorship of sporting events held in the country starting next year following an anti-tobacco campaign issued by the Badminton World Federation.
“Djarum has decided to end its sponsorship in next year’s Indonesia Open as well as other badminton tournaments, including local events on the National Circuit, to support the campaign. We are fine with the ban as long as it is not only for Djarum,” Yoppy Rosimin, the Djarum Foundation’s Program Director for Sports, told the Jakarta Globe on Friday.
However, Yoppy said, it does not mean Djarum will halt its sponsorship efforts in badminton. Blibli.com, a new online store affiliated with Djarum, will be the next sponsor of the 2014-2017 Indonesia Open.
“Blibli will be the next sponsor to help develop the company,” he said. “And I assure you that the tournament will be as big as before, even bigger. We will increase the prize money every year.”
So, next year, it will be called BLIBLI INDONESIA OPEN SSP 2014!
