    One of the reason why BWF is pushing this,is to make sure that Badminton wont be cut out from Olympics games...
    BWF had hired Marketing firm to run these SS Premier and regular SS this year or next year...
    the only obstacle remains if INA, KOR, CHN and MAS will let the players register themselves or not....

    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.
    I heard that European countries had the problem if BWF sets up prize money of US$ 500.000 for Premier...

    It is quote strange tha Star.com ( MAS) reported that KOR and CHINA offers lucrative amount of money....hm...hm..

    Yeah, the Star online even doesn't mention Denmark as one of Premiere SS host. BWF will make official press statement today as reported by the Star.

    The article's title is quite misleading people
    It should be badminton premier super series instead of badminton super series..

    Malaysia not chosen to host badminton Super Series

    KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia have enjoyed many firsts in badminton but they will not be one of the four chosen ones to host the premier Super Series event next year.
    It is learnt that Malaysia lost to several other “rich” countries clamouring to be hosts for the premier Super Series, dubbed the “Grand Slam” of badminton.
    Only four are selected and it looks like South Korea and China, who had offered lucrative prize money, are set to be the hosts.
    The other hosts could be among these countries - England, Japan and Indonesia.
    It is a blow to Malaysia, who are known among the world badminton fraternity as one of the powerhouses and a good host.
    The Badminton World Federation's (BWF) council meeting ended yesterday but they will only make official press statements on their decisions today.

    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...
    Bam now already got so much problem so i'm assuming they don't give a damn on this..

    Media Announcement: Korea Open make history, India get Super Series nod
    Saturday, May 22, 2010

    In a major boost for badminton and the players involved in the sport, the Badminton World Federation today announced the hosts for the 2011-2013 Super Series season with the first ever million dollar prize money in a single tournament next year.
    Expressing his delight with the development, BWF president Dr Kang Young Joong also announced that the Super Series circuit next year will offer combined total prize money of USD4.7 million, a substantial increase from the USD3.3 million total prize money on offer for the 2010 season.

    “There is more money in the sport, we have our first ever million dollar prize money tournament, and above all, the BWF received a strong interest from our Members to be a part of the Super Series circuit,” said Dr Kang after chairing a Council meeting in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

    “These are positives for the sport and I firmly believe we are heading in the right direction in terms of developing and promoting the sport. The future is bright.”

    The 12 hosts of the Super Series circuit for the 2011-2013 seasons are Denmark, England, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and China hosting two legs.

    From the 12 Super Series events, five have been selected as Premier Series events, with the Korea Open offering USD1.2 million prize money followed by Indonesia on USD600,000. The other three Premier Series events – Denmark Open, All England Championships and China Open - offer a minimum total prize money of USD350,000 for each event.

    The BWF introduced the Super Series format in 2007 to showcase badminton at a higher level of presentation and competitiveness, to increase television coverage for the sport and to increase the star quality and popularity of the top players in the world through increased television coverage.

    Following a review of its events in 2009, the BWF decided to introduce a two-tier Super Series circuit – the Premier Series and Super Series. The Super Series circuit offers a minimum total prize money of USD200,000 for each tournament.

    A total of 17 applications were received from Member Associations to be included as a Super Series event with another eight applications received for the Premier Series.

    Koreans break $1 million mark in Super Series revamp

    REUTERS, May 22, 2010, 01.37pm IST

    LONDON: Next year's Korean Open badminton tournament will become the first in the sport to offer over $1 million in prize money.

    The event is one of five named in a media release late on Friday by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) as one of its new Premier Super Series tournaments, effectively its first "Grand Slam."

    The others, agreed at a BWF council meeting in Kuala Lumpur, are Indonesia, China, the All England, and Denmark.

    Prize money in Indonesia has been raised to $600,000 while the other three are offering a minimum of $350,000 each.

    There will be seven other second-tier Super Series events with a minimum purse of $200,000 -- in France, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and China.

    Total prize money for the year, including the Premier tournaments, will rise from $3.3 million to $4.7 million.

    BWF president Dr Kang Young-joong said: "There is more money in the sport, we have our first ever million dollar prize money tournament and above all the BWF received a strong interest from our member countries.

    "These are positives for the sport and I firmly believe we are heading in the right direction in terms of developing and promoting the sport. The future is bright."

    There were 17 applications to host a Super Series event and eight to stage one of the Premier tournaments.

    The Super Series format was introduced in 2007 but after a review at the end of 2009 the decision was taken to introduce a two-tier system from 2011.

    ..as been mentioned many times before, i hope the Indonesian Open organizer works hard to fix the ticketing service dept. It's quite embarrassing to be a host of a Premier SS event whilst having a below professional level ticketing service (no online service & other ticketing issues) in comparison to the M'sia Open ticketing service..Besides that, hopefully they'll get a dependable web hosting service and put up an interesting/attractive website..

    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

    TV-wise, tennis can do it because doubles is such an afterthought for both promoters and spectators. They can sell 3h finals to broadcasters because few really care whether they see the mixed doubles final or not. With badminton, though, it is doubles which give spectators some of the most exciting matches and definitely the most regional diversity among winners.

    Five sets of tennis is not equivalent to 5x21 in badminton, where 3 games of 21 already stretch fitness to the limit. If the oft-cited 1985 figures indeed still apply to modern matches with the rally-point system - which they probably do - a 75-minute badminton match already involves more actual playing time, more distance covered, and more intensity than a 3h Grand Slam tennis match, meaning that the equivalent might actually be to make all the other tournaments go to 3x17 points and keep the Premier SS at 3x21. Either that or Grand Slam tennis has to move to best of 7 sets to catch up to badminton.
