BWF: The five top-tier World Superseries Premier tournaments – China (Guangzhou), Denmark, England, Malaysia and Indonesia – promise to be more lucrative, each with minimum prize money of US$500,000 (2014; 2015); US$550,000 (2016); and US$600,000 (2017).

Weird, if you look at the official BWF OSIM site, the price money at All England 2014 is set at 500 000 USD.

While SS or SSP is typically a matter of prize money, AE is a conditionality given its prestige as the oldest badminton tourney.

I agree world championships and Olympics are considered differently but age of tournament is a weak argument. For it's prestige, yes, I agree All England is a more desirable tournament but SSP status and allowing it to offer less prize money...?

Definition 2.3 gives the definition of SSP.
But that should be a minimum criteria. Let's say 7 tournaments offer more than $500,000 , then other factors come into consideration in selecting the 5 SSP out of that 7.
In those definitions, All England is not mentioned as an exception.

I don't have idea why certain people are against to one of the prestigious tournament .
England is the birth place of this wonderful sport. It has a history for more than 100 years of badminton cycle which no other tournament has. Nothing unusual in giving importance to this wonderful tournament though it offers less money than any other 'child' SSP tournaments. This is the mother of all the SSP tournaments which someone can't get rid off(degraded) just like that . Period

I think we should be calling for more prize money for the tournament. Very few people in England apart from badminton fans know what the All England is. I am sure they could create a advertising campaign to generate more interest and raise public awareness which attract tv coverage and possibly more noney from tv rights which would go towards prize money.
I wish BWF and badminton england would be a bit more proactive about this as it seems a shame interest in the tournament is falling and it is risking losing its prestigous status.

Check this out http://www.allenglandbadminton.com/w...premier-event/
Thus, either the All England website or the prospectus must be erroneous. I guess the website is the correct one. BWF, I believe, is not that ignorant to transgress its own rule.
