I also see in the brochure that the season-ticket prices are 150, 120, 90, and 60. I assume these are in Euros. They also have packages if you plan to do some sight-seeing as well (no prices were included though).

    I thought they had it in Spain once before, in Seville 2001. Why not give the job to someone else ...

    You can find all details on the WC websites including tickets and travel
    packages (accommodation + tickets).

    Well, considering that the WC venue shifts, it makes sense to keep it in places where badminton is not already popular so you're using it to promote the sport in those places. I mean, the places where badminton is popular are already hosting annual events anyway and that is something that they need a dependable base for spectators and sponsors. For the WC, on the other hand, players and sponsors will be interested anyway just because it's the WC. Having said that, one has to wonder why they wouldn't benefit from promoting in different countries twice in 5 years. It would be nice if they could promote it in countries where badminton has potential but still not overwhelming interest. I'm thinking the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Australia, New Zealand. The nice thing is that facility demands are not so limiting. It isn't like skiing or speed-skating WC, after all and it isn't even like the World Cup in 2002 when the size of the FIFA-standard stadiums gave rise to fears that they'd have rows and rows of empty seats for games not involving Korea and they actually made plans to empty middle schools for such situations.

    The pattern seems clear, though. The only times in its history (including 2006)...







    that the WC has been hosted by a badminton power (unless you count England) was 6 of 15 times: 1980, 1983, 1987, 1989, 1991, and 1999.

    Why Canada? We already had the WC once, in 1985. Canada is too small a market with too much competition for viewers/fans from all those sports that are marketed seamlessly from the US. It's also too big and sparesely populated so people from regions not near the tournament won't book 5-hour flights to go see it. Korea, which has never had a WC, would make more sense with 45 million people (including many times the players of Canada) in an area a little bigger than Lake Superior. Anaheim made sense because of the big-time population density in southern California, not to mention the large number of immigrants from strong badminton nations who don't have access to world-class tournaments. These are reasons that make sense in hindsight even if we now know that the hope for US TV coverage was a pipe dream. India is another example, perhaps. There seems to be some interest there but it isn't a recognized badminton market. A mobile population isn't necessary there given the size of its cities. I can appreciate that there must be other barriers to having it there.

    Going back to the very first post, I wonder if the bid from Madrid was just a very, very good package. Why should it be so good? Because Madrid is bidding for the Olympics. It makes sense for a city bidding for the Olympics to host some world class events beforehand to brighten its prospects.
