New sponsors for Indonesian players (was: Update News for 2013)
Today we received quite shocking rumor.
Starting 2013, there would be no major sponsorship for Indonesian nationals / team.
PBSI (Indonesian Badminton Association) has granted permission to the players to choose his/her personal sponsor.
Almost 80 athletes of Indonesian first tier and second tier are in the middle of negotiation process with various sponsor, amongst others, yonex, lining, victor, babolat, charlton, astec, flypower, and many others badminton vendors.
We shall see these changes within the near future. One of the hugh rumors are Tontowi and Liliyana opt for Victor, whilst the recent Malaysian MD Winner, Hendra and Ahsan stick to Yonex.

Well I never liked the idea that the whole national team has to stick to one sponsor for individual tournaments. The apparel for team competitions however should be uniform.
Maybe some of them will sign with adidas.

Interesting how much higher the value of total sponsorship would be when there is no exclusive 1 single sponsor.
Anyway, expect to see many brands on INA team jersey(only 1 sporting brand per player, I guess but many other companies' brand)

*very* interesting. so it was held like an auction with each vendor putting up bids?
Victor will be doing very well with part of its feet in Indonesia as well.

So, Sirnas will be named as: "Djarum Li-Ning Sirnas xxx" replacing Flypower?
