As disclosed by the BWF, it is an historical moment and an important decision for them to award the hosting rights of the 18 major BWF events together. It is aimed at bringing badminton events to the parts of the world that have not previously hosted BWF events, developing the sport around the world and working with the host cities for the long term.
