    Now that would be funny. But what if they really couldn't? No tournament or just a downgrade?

    KOR is rich and 1.2 million is well within its means. Look at how much money they offer for golf.

    I am glad IND is given an SS. Dropping Swiss SS does little harm. I wonder if they will hold All-England, Denmark and France together. 3 weeks in a row?

    CHN has 1/6 th (or thereabouts) of the world's population. Another SS for them is fine with me.

    Looks like I may make a trip to INA next year.

    This is only the beginning ...

    Not good to have all three in a row. Some players may be injured which would seriously curtail their chances of attending and one objective is to encourage more participation. Probably 2 together is the maximum.

    Yeah, so surprising that China still has 2 SS, premiere & regular but good to know IND gets promotion to hold SS

    So, INA is the second big to provide total prize-money after KOR, US$600,000, WoW!

    Thx Hauge for this breaking news

    So if this is the line up for 2011-2013 maybe we could change the scoring system like Tennis has
    Or the Premier Super Series we could have 5x21
    PREMIER Super Series
    Korea Open
    Indonesia Open
    China Open
    Denmark Open
    All England

    And for regular Super Series we could have 3x21
    REGULAR Super Series
    French Open
    Hongkong Open
    Singapore Open
    Japan Open
    Malaysia Open
    China Master
    India Open

    Anyone care to give their opinion ?

    I am hoping that CHN can do more..been told that they may raise to US$ 1 mil

    Still unhappy about China Masters and Hong Kong's inclusion.

    I presume Swiss was demoted to GP Gold or GP.

    I heard that in the BWF meeting there were some unhappiness about China getting:
    1. China Open Premier SS
    2. China Masters SS
    3. Hong Kong Open SS (HK is technically within Chinese territory)

    I am happy India got the SS! Great move by the BWF there... In the future, maybe the Premier SS should be there instead of Korea. If some people think Korea is rich... wait until the Indian corporations have the appetite for sponsoring badminton...

    As for INA getting the Premier SS.... well I'm happy MAS did not bid higher...

    MAS already bankrupt.

    KOREA with US$ 1.2 million
    INA with US$ 600.000
    China with US$ 350.000 ( very surprised!!!)
    Denmark with US$ 350.000
    England with US$ 350.000


    USD 350,000? Maybe BWF should set a minimum bid of USD500,000.
    And 5 is one too many.
    China should be dropped as in Asia, we already have Korea & INA who are offering higher.

    China has 1/6th of the population, And the strongest team, they should have a premier SS.

    I agree! But they should have 1 Premier SS and make China Masters like a Copenhagen Masters... HK Open should just be a GP Gold... HK Open is perfect as a GP Gold event... Along with Singapore and Macau, these city states are prefect for GP Golds...

    China have their own league. That's why they are only offering 350k as prize money.

    We can now proudly say that BADMINTON is improved and improving......This news really pleased me so much. KOREA is really appreciative, they have been offering the highest cash prizes since the last 5-6 years that I remember. 1.2 Million is very noticeable amount, I wish all of those 5 premiers offered 1.2 millions. that would have been great, based on Super Series distribution criteria the champion would then receive 96,000$ and thats a great amount of money on top of regular super series. This is a great boost to Badminton. By the way CHINA should have at least directly offered 7figures amount, because they are the most advanced and developed country in terms of Badminton and economy. PG and TH should consider staying in Pro Badminton for another 5 years lol.
