New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Stadium (IGI) set to host the ninth edition of the BWF World Tour Super 500 tournament also known as Indian Open from March 26 to 31.
The tournament which has a prize money of $350,000 will return for its ninth edition at this venue after being held at the Siri Fort Sports Complex for the last seven years.
The Indira Gandhi International Stadium (IGI) in the recent past hosted the AIBA Women's World Boxing Championships. All the matches will be played at the KD Jadhav Indoor Hall located within the IGI stadium.
Historically India has registered good results in this tournament and I am confident our players will repeat the feat this year too; especially playing at a new and historic venue like Indira Gandhi Stadium," said Himanta Biswa Sarma, BAI President.
This year's Indian Open will see top players from world badminton trying to accumulate as many ranking points possible to guarantee a direct entry for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
