    Default Prize money and ranking points: 750k vs 250k

    Australia Open has a prize money of $750,000, and Japan Open has $250,000.

    Yet, they award the same ranking points!!

    Isn't it a bit weird?

    Not really. LD cannot get the prize if he can't win. I don't say he can't win, but there is no guarantee that he will. If money is all about, why LCW decided not to attend?

    About the prize money, I don't know where the fund comes from, but in my perspective, Australia is trying to promote badminton (Australia Open 2014 is their first SS event), so they are trying to attract top ranking players to participate with the prize.

    They award the same ranking points because they are both a Superseries tournament. The BWF decide how much ranking points will be award in each type of tournament (GP, GPG, Superseries, Superseries Premier) through a set of rule. The prize money depends on the sponsors.

    INA open prize money is the same as AUS open, the ranking points are higher.
    Also, it is compulsory for top 10 to attend, unless injured but they are still supposed to come or pay fines.

    Pcll99 is commenting on the why can't the Australian Open have more points.

    Partly because of the rule differentiating PSS and SS.

    It wouldn't surprise me that the Australians did initially try for PSS status. The drawbacks for BWF would be the lack of a track record in organising SS badminton events.

    I would hope that the Australians have given the other PSS events something to think about. All England prize money isn't even disclosed to the public - that is a joke. I suspect it doesn't even reach the threshold for PSS prize money.

    Malaysia might have to buck up its act.

    My main issue is that I cannot confirm if the All England gave $500 000 prize money as per Premier Super Series rules stipulate.

    $400 000 is confirmed - but why is the All England allowed to break the rules for Premier status?


    Here is the thread on it.

    John Player and Marlboro were sponsors of badminton.

    I thought Star was a hotel.

    Dubai doesn't seem too bad a place after all!

    Why? because of MAS Open with 500k instead of KOR Open with 1M.

    Don't quite understand that.

    But anyway, BWF will need to review it's decision making .

    If it does continue to give Premier status to those that don't offer the highest prize money, then there is less incentive for organisers to offer more prize money. Or if it gives Premier status to a tournament that cannot reach the prize money level, that depresses organisers of other super series and demotivates them to raising more money.
