Host city selection[edit]

Badminton World Federation initially intended to split the Thomas and Uber Cup finals as separate tournaments. Malaysia was the only bidder for Thomas Cup finals, while China and South Korea were interested to host the Uber Cup finals.[1] The plan to split the tournaments was eventually abandoned and Malaysia was asked to hold the Uber Cup final together.[2]
