After three years of disruptions caused by the pandemic, BWF Secretary General Thomas Lund expressed his optimism for a return to normalcy in the badminton community over the next few years. Lund stated, “As we emerge out of COVID-19, we are now able to structure a full week-by-week tournament calendar with an emphasis on expanding our global footprint.” He further highlighted that the increase in Super 1000, Super 750, and Super 500 World Tour tournaments will lead to higher prize money, increased player opportunities, greater television and online coverage, and enhanced presentation, ultimately contributing to an improved world-class sports product.
