    I got email from BWF that we are assured that SS final will happen.
    The decision will be made by October 15 and they will post it on the web....

    The later BWF make their decision, the less possible candidates to host the event will become. It is not easy to cover all the administrative and logistic arrangement if BWF make their request very late.

    Donot forget the scheduled data is almost immediately after SEA Games (which will be held in Bangkok), a lot of SEA countries will be busy on their own SEA Games preparation etc that make it even harder to organise the final if they are given late notices.

    I really donot understand what is the delay in the decision from BWF. This is their inaugural yaer of Super Series and surely they must want to make the final a grand event. If they do, they must make the decision now so that the marketing and campaigning can take place to promote the event - we are talking 2 months away from now!

    A result of the BWF power-grabbing episode...?

    Uhm... I think the Dr. Kang vs. Punch Gunalan drama inside the BWF might have delayed things... :p If your #1 and #2 guy in the BWF organization are fighting, who has time to really take care of this Superseries Finals thing... :rolleyes:

    My top guess:
    1. Singapore, got the stadium and the fan-base...
    2. Kuala Lumpur, close to the BWF headquarters and a massive audience...
    3. Doha, for the $$$
    4. Dubai, for the $$$ but so far not so interested in badminton eh?
    5. Beijing, use the new stadium (why not treat it as the 2nd 'Olympic test')
    6. My company's 3 court facility with an audience capacity of 200 people...
    7. They cancel!

    I will vote for #6. At least can go Indonesia.

    joking aside.. i think Dubai is definately a no no. so far they have not mentioned anything about Singapore. Its not even listed unless there is changes. If Doha is a no go.. the SS Finals should be in KL again. Since we open up the 1st leg of the Super Series in KL ( Malaysia Open ). We may have the closing for he year in KL too.
