    Default 6 Stars Tournament - Singapore Open 2005

    Today Singapore Newspaper (Strait Times) revealed that 2005 Singapore Open will be rated as 6 stars will be end of June to early July 2005. It was 5 stars rating until 2004 tournament.

    The same news also indicated that entry ticket fees will be reduced (30%) in order to attract more fans.

    Hope that 6 stars will attract more world class players and lesser entry fees will entice the more fans.

    Default 6* or 5*

    Yes! It seems contraray to the news from the newspaper and from its official webpage. Nonetheless we will see it within a couple of months later.

    Thanks for bringing up the attention.

    Default A 6* Singapore Open

    well the report is quite confusing itself. reported on the straits times newspaper(our local newspaper) on saturday.british insurer aviva has announced a 3million sponsorship for the tournament until 2007.the move is likely to see the annual five star tournament upgraded to a six-star tournment boasting a minimum purse of us250,000 in 2007.ticek prices have also been cut as much as half from $15-$8.last year kids aged between 2-12 had to pay $10-12,this time they can watch for free.

    singapore indoor stadium
    june27-july3
    prize purse:us$170,000(s$279,000)
    tickets:adult $8-$10 adults
    students $4-$8
    under 12 free

    It will be 5 star event this year, and they are planning to upgrade it to 6 star next year. And AVIVA has signed the sponsorship for the next 3 years from 2005 to 2007

    What i found interesting was that the papers said it costs around 700,000 just to run the tournament. Never knew it was that expensive.

    if you read this press release here:

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/badm...ent/view/99/2/

    i obtained that press release directly from the Singapore Open 2005 people. and it clearly says 170,000 and 5* tournament.

    So is it only the Purse that determines the rating of a tournament?
