BWF announces that it has made the tough decision in consultation and agreement with Badminton Denmark to postpone the TOTAL BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals 2020 in Aarhus, Denmark.
This decision comes following the withdrawal of a number of participating teams from the TOTAL BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals – a choice the BWF has to respect and acknowledge.
With the withdrawals and following lengthy discussions with key stakeholders, commercial partners and participating Member Associations, it became clear that we are not in a position to deliver the level of competition reasonably expected by fans and all stakeholders for a World Men’s / Women’s Team Championships. BWF is looking into possible alternative dates in 2021.
Please see the announcement related to this on the BWF Fan website (linked here).
The DANISA Denmark Open – a HSBC BWF World Tour Super 750 will be hosted as planned.
