BWF World Tour Finals 2023: LIVE Streaming, When and Where to Watch, Schedule

The 2023 BWF World Tour Finals is the final tournament of the 2023 BWF World Tour roster. It will also give a winner from BWF’s top eight ranked players or pairs to fight it out in the prestigious tournament in Hangzhou, China. Furthermore, the winner will walk away with not only the prestigious trophy but a cash prize of $ 2.5 million. Usually, the World Tour Finals is an amalgamation of a year-long series of tourneys across the globe wherein the badminton players/pairs gather points based on their performances. Although there will be a lot of superstars across the world; not a single shuttler from India has been able to make the cut this time around. This is a huge setback for such a frenzied nation of badminton lovers. Nevertheless, the fans are sure to be entertained for some passionate badminton matches.

How did the above players qualify for the World Tour Finals 2023?

The above shuttlers are coming in the finals after a hard-fought battle of 31 games spread across the badminton roster. This includes tournaments which are divided into five levels: World Tour Finals, Super 1000, Super 750, Super 500 and Super 300. Each of these tournaments offers different ranking points which are added against the players. Subsequently, the top seven shuttlers from each category along with/or the current World Champion in their respective discipline get entry into the prestigious tournament. This year the BWF China Masters was the qualifying tournament for the BWF World Tour Finals. Kodai Naraoka by the virtue of winning the men’s singles title jumped to the top spot in the season’s rankings. His compatriot Kenta Nishimoto just missed out on making it to the list. Thailand’s Kunlavut Vitidsarn who won the BWF World Championships title has attained direct qualification.

An Se Young who has recently returned from injury topped the list in the women’s singles. She was followed by reigning Olympic champion Chen Yufei and Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi. However, Akane will miss the tournament due to an unfortunate injury. In the doubles section, current world no.1 Liang Wei Keng/Wang Chang will enter the competition as favourites having recently defeated Asian Games champions Satwik-Chirag at China Masters 2023.
