    Or INA should fire itself to allow the less popular countries take its place since badminton is already so popular there and does not require additional publicity.

    Default Cost to compete affects some countries..

In the end it's only a label and on the calendar it's probably still before or after AE so will it really a make a big difference?

Not only for Swiss Open but the other European tourneys. Those players from Asian/SE Asian region might find it a bit more pricey to play outside of Asia/SE Asia in comparison to say players coming from Europe to play in SE Asia/Asia region (foreign exchange value).
    Case in point, the recent WJC in Mexico. Eventhough Mexico is a 3rd world country, there were still many Asian players/association who find it hard and expensive to travel all the way there to compete.
    On the other hand, European/U.S. players probably can still bear the cost.
    Maybe that's one of the reasons why BWF and badminton tend to stay more on the Asian continent side for their major tourneys..

    This is a valid point.

    Perhaps the prize money can be extended wider to even those who qualified and made it to the first round to help the lesser known players pay for their expenses, if this has not been done already.

    There has been Con and Pro among players itself...Top players prefer no money on 1st round and less known players do want it.
    BWF has dilemma and Players representative had the input for BWF..( I forgot Canadian guy, a former player and husband of Anne Rice), recently went for a meeting with BWF council in KL.

    In my opinion, for Premier,,they should award 1st round loser with prize money.
    So far Jakarta provides the cheapest hotel rate among SS...even Singapore is very expensive..last year the hotel rate is about US$ 240..( if I am not wrong and SBA is trying to negotiate the rate and the problem it is summmer time and peak season in Singapore)

    It is cheaper to book the hotel directly than to go thru the association at times. I noticed that the association charge higher hotel rates. Anyway I support the notion that 1st rd losers also get prize money. Even golf and tennis does that if I'm not mistaken.

    Tennis provides prize money even in qualifying round but for GOLF...you have to be qualified ( from cut off) otherwise you get nothing

    I personally think that there should be at least 1000-1500$ in the Korean Premiere for first round players and atleast $1000 in other super series, So players like Petr Koukal, Scot Evans and many other who are playing without or less funding will be able to afford playing more and more and it will encourage them to keep up Badminton....BWF is taking positive steps now, I wish the prize money for each Premiere reach at least $1million by next years, then the PROS will enjoy Badminton even more, Fans too.

    Djarum Strikes Up a Deal to Sponsor Indonesia Open

    Until regulations prohibiting tobacco companies from sponsoring sports events are put in place, Indonesia Open organizers are more than happy to do business with PT Djarum.

    Under a recently signed three-year deal, the cigarette company will provide the $600,000 prize money at the Indonesia Open starting next year, when the tournament is introduced as part of the inaugural Premier Series.

    “Through the Premier Series, we want to show the world that our country can host a tournament with substantial prize money,” Djarum director Yan Haryadi said at a news conference on Tuesday. “It will give Indonesia prestige in the badminton community.”

    Yan said that Djarum, which is sponsoring this month’s Indonesia Open Super Series, wanted to demonstrate its commitment to badminton despite what he called a growing domestic campaign against tobacco use.

    Last month, the Health Ministry said it was drafting a proposal to ban cigarette companies from communicating directly with consumers, including through promotions.

    “The Badminton World Federation has not issued any regulation banning us from sponsoring a tournament,” Yan said. “Should the BWF make a decision against this kind of sponsorship, then we will back out.”
