Badminton may not be classed as a mainstream sport, but it is one of the most exciting and competitive events on the sporting circuit. Now that bet365 has purchased the rights to make officially licensed badminton live streams available to their online members, badminton fans can watch tournaments like the BWF Super Series and Yonex Opens streamed live and free of charge.
The BWF Super Series was introduced by the Badminton World Federation in 2006 in an attempt to improve the standard of the sport. The Series is a second-tiered tournament and played in 11 countries with tournament winners then invited to take part in the Super Series Final at the end of the season.
The prize money for all Super Series events will offer a minimum of $200,000 US Dollars and the Super Series will offer prize money to competitors regardless of how far they have gone in the tournament, unless they have failed to pass the qualifying stages. In 2010 Malaysian Badminton player Lee Chong Wei was successful in winning the men’s tournament, while the women’s title went to Wang Shixian.
The Yonex Opens take place throughout the season with money and ranking points up for grabs. The major tournaments from this series include the German Open, All-England Open, Australian Open, India Open and Malaysia Open - all of which are available as free live streams with no membership fees or streaming software requirements.
