The Badminton World Federation (BWF) is the international governing body of the sport of badminton, and a showcase of the very best in the game. Their vision is to make badminton a leading global sport, and accessible to all. That is why 12BET is delighted to announce that they will be the official partner of the BWF Championships 2017.
About the Championships
The very first BWF Championships was hosted in Malmö, Sweden in 1977, and was then held every three years until 1983. After this, the event became biennial. It wasn’t until quite recently, in 2005, that the BWF World Championships became an annual tournament. This year’s TOTAL BWF Championships 2017 will be taking place in Glasgow, Scotland, and will run for seven thrilling days, from August 21st to 27th in the prestigious Emirates Arena. The preliminary rounds will be held for the first three days of the competition, followed by one day each for the round of 16, the quarter-finals, and the semi-finals.
The much-anticipated final rounds take place on the very last day of the tournament, and will determine the world champions in each of the five disciplines: men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed doubles.
BWF Secretary General Thomas Lund, welcomed 12BET as the official partner of one of BWF’s most prestigious events, and a highlight of the 2017 badminton season. The BWF Championships has massive global appeal and will be watched by millions of fans, which will provide the 12BET brand with significant worldwide publicity. This sponsorship agreement is brokered by Infront Sports & Media, a Wanda Sports company, and will provide 12BET with product category exclusivity and branding within the Emirates Arena.
