KUALA LUMPUR, April 2 (Bernama) -- Dubai has signed a four-year partnership to host the BWF World Super Series Final and sponsor the BWF World Super Series Rankings under the name 'Destination Dubai'.
According to BWF's statement today, the world's best badminton players like Datuk Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia), Chen Long (China), Jan Jorgensen (Denmark) and Ratchanok Intanon (Thailand) will head to the season-ending BWF Destination Dubai World Super Series Final in December.
"In bringing the BWF Destination Dubai World Super Series Final to the UAE and the wider Middle East region for the first time, Dubai will also have naming rights for the 'Destination Dubai Rankings'.
"These rankings will be generated from points gathered on the 12-stage MetLife BWF World Super Series, in which badminton's elite players have been competing since January," the statement said.
