The BWF Council decides to pay bonus for Superseries ‘Top 10’ Rankers

The BWF Council decides  to pay bonus  for Superseries ‘Top 10’ Rankers

The BWF Member’s Forum and Annual General Meeting of BWF were held in India recently. It was a great session for their members to come together and discuss their future plans & tournament calenders.

In that sessions the BWF Council unanimously decided to share an annual US$400,000 bonus amongst the top-ranked players who fulfil various media and sponsorship commitments for the MetLife BWF World Superseries. According to their pay scheme, singles players stand to take home between US$12,000 (for the No.1 players) and US$ 3,000 (players ranked 8 to 10) while doubles pairs can split between US$16,000 (for the No. 1 pairs) and US$4,000 (pairs ranked 8 to 10).

These pay-outs will be based on the fulfilment of enhanced media and sponsorship obligations throughout the season, as updated in the BWF Players’ Code of Conduct – including per-tournament publicity events, press conferences, various interviews, photo opportunities, autograph sessions and BWF special events/awards ceremonies. Another requirement is attendance at educational activities scheduled by BWF.

“We need to reward our valuable players for contributing to the success of the World Super Series in various ways which are crucial facts of promoting professional sports, at the same time, BWF is trying to protect them ” outlined BWF President Poul-Erik.

The BWF believes that, with the help of this Player Incentive Scheme, the Top 10 competitors are able to get benefit from a protected ranking if his/her career is briefly derailed due to injury or any unavoidable circumstance. According to this new incentive scheme player in the Top 10 may claim their bonus once every two year. A protected ranking can be granted for the maximum of a year.
