I am ready to pay for the premium tickets and watch the Singapore Badminton Open Semi-finals and Finals once again if and only if the BWF and the organizers would somehow ensure that they would not tolerate players from withdrawing in the game (especially in the Finals) without getting any ranking sanction or sufficient monetary penalties to prevent instances like what happened two years ago between LD and Jin Chen

I have been supporting the SG Open SS since its inauguration, at the stadium every year.
But this year, due to work, I may be just contented to watch the SG Open on tv, am still pondering.

For this reason, I hope other interested BC members will try their best to attend this year's Open!
BTW, for those who may not have noticed, especially kwun and Cheung, our BC name is mentioned in the new SBA website.

ABOUT SINGAPORE OPEN
History of Singapore Open
Started a quarter of a century ago in 1987, the Singapore Open has proven to be a success as a marquee sporting event in promoting badminton around the region, and helping companies enhance its branding and presence in Singapore. Misbun Sidek was the very first Men's Singles champion, while the legendary Liem Swee King was the first Men's Doubles champion when he partnered Bobby Ertanto in 1987. Our past winners also included illustrious badminton players such as Zhao Jian Hua, Yang Yang, Li Ling Wei, Han Ai Ping, Razif and Jalani Sidek, Foo Kok Keong and the list goes on.
The Indoor Stadium is Singapore's largest and most versatile indoor sports and entertainment venue.
Officially opened in December 1989, the Singapore Indoor Stadium has a flexible arena that can be arranged to accommodate both small (2,500 spectators) and large crowds (up to 12,000 spectators). The Stadium has been used for various major sport events, entertainment events and concerts performed by international superstars such as Elton John and Janet Jackson. In 1999 and 2000, the stadium hosted the Tennis' Heineken Open, and welcomed players such as Marcelos Rios and Lleyton Hewitt.
The Indoor Stadium is also no stranger to world-class badminton action. The Li-Ning Singapore Open is a high-profile tournament that has been held there since 2004. The Indoor Stadium has since seen the crowning of top-seed players such as Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei, Peter Gade and Zhang Ning at the tournaments.

BC is mentioned on the home page at the bottom as follows under "Badminton Resources":
"Singapore Badminton Association (SBA) is the National Sporting Association (NSA) for badminton. The association is charged with the training and performance of our national athletes and the national and international competitions. Badminton is the 5th most participated sport with regular players projected minimally at 170,000!"
•Badminton World Federation
•Badminton Asia Confederation
As regards displaying our BC Banner, we have tried it before in 2004 (I think) when kwun made his maiden voyage here with his wife and mother (who incidentally commissioned the original BC banner to be made in China) and we also had a BC gathering in his honour. We managed to unfurl our banner only for a brief moment but was told to keep it as only sponsors' material was allowed to be displayed.
SBA management has changed since then, and I wonder whether we can display our BC banner now, since we have so many thousands of enthusiastic members around the world following the Singapore Open not only in person but also via the social media, even when they are supposed to be sleeping because of the different time zone. And with an expected field of so many superstars, more will forego sleep for a chance to follow or witness their stars in action.
The BC banner will add tremendous meaning to badminton world passion and to have it displayed in such a beautiful indoor stadium as the SIS for all to see during the SO, will indeed make Singapore a most unique venue to connect with badminton fans worldwide.
I think Singapore held the distinct honour of displaying the BC Banner in a hugely recognised tournament such as the SO unofficially for the first time in 2004.
To have it displayed officially in Singapore in 2013, after a decade, will give strength and support to not only badminton in general, but more so to SBA as an organisation really promoting the sport worldwide. BC members all around the world will be thrilled to see the BC Banner!
How about it Mr Bobby Lee?
