    I believe it has been confirmed that badminton will be staged at Wembley Arena.
    I think it makes a lot of commercial sense considering the amount of overspending that's already happening. Besides, the olympic village and Wembley is not exactly a million miles
    apart.
    Plus, Wembley is nearer to me and has lots of parking spaces.
    It'll feel like taking a trip down memory lane when i'm there.

    Arrow BWF has still not made a decision

    At the first plan for the 2012 Olympic Games, Badminton was to be staged at a temporary stadium (in Greenwich) which will be built for it. The building would be scrapped after the Games. Now, they are thinking of not building the temporary stadium; to save money.

    Last month (October, 2009), this was one of the articles released: click here
    Yesterday, this article was released: click here

    But BWF said that they will not make a decision about whether to accept the move to Wembley before Friday (today) when its ruling Council meets in Bali. The BWF's chief operating officer Thomas Lund said: "We have still not made a decision."

    Weeks ago, BWF was saying that Wembley is too far from the Olympic Village for our players to travel.

    That's one thing for sure.

    Wembley is one place with rich Badminton history (with so many All-England tournaments staged there).

    Distance and travel wise, if i recall, last yr's badminton venue in Beijing was also quite a distance to the athlete's village. Certainly, it wasn't a stone's throw away or within walking distance.

    I don't mind badminton reusing an existing venue like the Wembley. If it's still useable, then why not?
