BWF World Tour: Asian Leg in Bangkok, Thailand in January 2021

The adjusted HSBC BWF World Tour 2020 will be held in Bangkok, Thailand in January next year. This exciting leg of the tournament will feature two Super 1000 tournaments, concluding with the highly anticipated HSBC BWF World Tour Finals. The decision was made at a recent BWF Council meeting, ensuring that the 2020 season will now extend into January 2021.

Collaboration for a Safe Tournament

The Badminton World Federation and the Badminton Association of Thailand, in partnership with the Government of Thailand, conducted a feasibility study to ensure a safe COVID-19 framework for the three tournaments. The study confirmed Thailand as the host for the Asian leg, and the BWF greatly appreciates the cooperation of the Badminton Association of Thailand and the support from the Government of Thailand. This collaboration is a crucial step in restarting international badminton tournaments.

Exciting Tournament Schedule

Mark your calendars for the thrilling Asian leg of the HSBC BWF World Tour 2020! Here are the tournament dates:

  • Asia Open I (Super 1000): 12-17 January 2021
  • Asia Open II (Super 1000): 19-24 January 2021

Due to logistical arrangements and the need to guarantee a high standard of tournament, the BWF Council decided that the originally planned November dates were no longer viable.
