Dubai To Host BWF Super Series Finals For Four Years



NEW DELHI, Apr 2 – Dubai’s Hamdan Sports Complex will host the annual Badminton World Federation (BWF) Super Series Finals for four years, starting this December.

The coveted event will be held from Dec 17-21 and will see the participation of some top players like Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia), Chen Long (China) and Saina Nehwal (India).

Only the top-8 players and pairs in each of badminton’s five categories can participate and this is decided on the basis of the points gathered in the 12-stage Super Series calendar.

“Dubai’s global connectivity, accessibility and track record in hosting world-class sporting events can only help us to grow the sport and make badminton even more accessible to fans.”
