The 1998 Thomas & Uber Cup was the 20th tournament of the Thomas Cup, and the 17th tournament of the Uber Cup, which are the major international team competitions in world badminton.

Host city selection[edit]

China was originally selected as the host, with Shanghai as the competition site. IBF later moved the competition to Hong Kong due to sponsorship issues which preferred Hong Kong over Shanghai. [1]

Thomas Cup[edit]

Teams[edit]

49 teams took part in the competition, and eight teams qualified for the Final Stage, including Indonesia, as defending champion, and Hong Kong, as host team. 1998 Thomas Cup is considered one of the greatest Thomas Cup competitions because the score difference of the games is very close and the games are played tightly.
