News | BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

The 32 teams that will be competing in the TotalEnergies BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals 2024 have been officially announced. After the recent continental championships, where teams battled it out for a spot in the finals, the 32 qualifying teams, with 16 in each cup, have been determined. The Thomas & Uber Cup Finals 2024 will be held in Chengdu, China, from April 27 to May 5.

Qualification for the finals is based on a combination of performance in the continental championships and world rankings. While the host country, China, and the defending champions, India (Thomas Cup) and Korea (Uber Cup), automatically qualify, the remaining teams earned their spots through their performances in the continental championships and their world ranking positions.

Each team’s ranking is calculated by adding up the world ranking points of its top three singles players and top two doubles pairs as of February 20, 2024. The top four teams from the Asian and European continental championships, as well as the champions of the Pan Am, Oceania, and Africa regions, qualify for the finals. The remaining spots are determined by world rankings.

In the event that the trophy holder and/or the host country secure a qualifying position in their respective continental tournaments, the next highest-ranked team(s) from the same continent will also qualify. For example, Indonesia qualified for the Thomas Cup from Asia, despite not making the semifinals of the qualifying event, because China had secured the host qualifying spot.
