With the world's top shuttlers competing for glory in China our number one live streaming partner bet365 has come up trumps again, offering live coverage from the prestigious event. 

Why do we rank bet365 number one? Firstly, no other online streaming provider offers first class coverage of so many international and domestic sporting events free of charge. And secondly, none of our other partners are able to stream these events in such high quality whilst allowing a bigger size streaming window.

With 30,000+ events streamed live every year, including all the top BWF Super Series events – such as the All England Open and Indonesia Open, there is something for everyone on offer at the site.

Bet365 also broadcast live streams from the Primera Division in Spain, Germany's Bundesliga, England's npower Championship, as well as Euroleague and NBA basketball, Premier League Darts, Champions League handball, and much, much more.

The bet365 website is one of the fastest in the industry and thanks to its vFabric private cloud technology, their infrastructure is able to handle thousands of changes per second. And as a result, data latency has decreased to less than two seconds. This means that bet365 can receive and process large amounts of incoming customer data whilst simultaneously delivering a continuous stream of real-time information.

Where can I watch the BWF World Championships live online?

As mentioned above, through our live streaming partner bet365. The firm is an industry leader in the world of live streaming sport, with a strong focus on badminton and all the top BWF Surer Series events. 

Where are the BWF World Championships being held? 

At the TianHe Indoor Gymnasium in the city of Guangzhou in the Guangdong Province in Southern China.

How do I get to the TianHe Indoor Gymnasium in Guangzhou?

Take the Guangzhou Metro Line 1 to Tianhe Sports Center Station (East Gate), Line 3 to Linhexi Station (North Gate) and Line 1 or 3 to Tiyu Xilu Station (West Gate and South Gate).

When do the BWF World Championships take place?

The competition runs from Monday, August 5 until Sunday August 11.

Who to watch out for in the men's singles:

World Number 1 Lee Chong Wei is the leading contender and enjoying another fine season. The Malaysian superstar recently added to his enormous collection of BWF Super Series titles when he landed the Djarum Indonesia Open in Jakarta, his fourth title of the campaign.  

The two-time Olympic silver medallist had considered retirement after London 2012 but thankfully decided to extend his playing career and go for gold at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. The 31-year-old faces a trio of Chinese challengers in his bid for World glory.

The man to beat - Lee Chong Wei

Arch rival Lin Dan, whose sporadic appearances since winning his second Olympic gold medal last year saw him drop out of the automatic qualification reckoning for the event, has received a controversial wild card entry and will defend his title. However, World No. 2 Chen Long and Du Pengyu are considered to be the real threats to Lee Chong Wei.

Chong Wei is determined to succeed though, telling reporters ahead of the competition:

“I know the nation’s [Malaysia] expectations are sky high on me to deliver at the world meet. I want to do well too. I have done well in the Super Series by winning many titles but have been unlucky when it comes to the world championships.”

Why is Lin Dan's wild card entry so controversial?

The four-time world champion has only made sporadic appearances since retaining his Olympic gold medal in London and as a result has fallen down the BWF World Rankings, making him ineligible to qualify automatically. The  29-year-old Chinese superstar placed the organisation in a difficult position, but ultimately they felt his stature and appeal to fans would significantly enhance the event.

China's Lin Dan sneaks in through the back door

China already have three top stars in the tournament - All-England champion Chen Long, Du Pengyu and Wang Zhengming - and that didn't go down well with Lee Chong Wei. He told The Star Online:

“How can the BWF give another slot to China when they already have three players in the fray. Would it not made more sense to give the wild card to a country who have no representative in the world championships?

“A player can stay away for eight months and still be considered for the world championships! What about the others who have worked hard to qualify for the event.

“He is one of the players, who had conceded walkovers and turned his back on BWF’s tournaments many times. Yet, he is rewarded with a wild card."

Here's Lin Dan in action:

Who to watch out for in the women's singles:

On home soil, it's difficult to see past a Chinese winner in the women's singles at the tournament. Li Xuerui is the current World No.1 and will be expected to progress to the business end of the tournament with ease, while Wang Yihan and Wang Shixian can't be ruled out.

However, if Olympic bronze medallist Saina Nehwal and German ace Juliane Schenk are on song in Guangzhou, they are more than capable of upsetting the locals and claiming World Championship glory.

World No. 2 Saina Nehwal 

India's Nehwal in particular, has proven her undoubted talent with the shuttlecock in the past few seasons, winning several BWF Super Series titles.
