Indian Badminton League to be rechristened 'Premier Badminton League'

In view of taking the scale of Badminton League to another level, BAI Organising committee has decided to rechristen Indian Badminton League (IBL) as Premier Badminton League (PBL). The League which is scheduled for Jan 2 -17, 2016 is slated to be the largest ever Badminton Tournament slated to bring some of the most noted names in the field of the sport together.

The decision to give a new name to the event was taken after much deliberation and keeping in mind that the committee aims to take the Tournament to global level in the years to come. PBL will also ensure that the League is no more associated with any country and it takes a global platform.

Dr. Akhilesh Das Gupta, President, BAI said, “It was a well thought out decision to change the name of the event at this stage. We want to see Premier Badminton League take global stage with more traction from all the stakeholders. We aim to make PBL the most sought after Tournament in the world of badminton.”

According to the release, most badminton associations across the world have already consented to send their players for the coveted tournament despite this being the Olympic year. This reflects the seriousness with which the Associations and players themselves have taken the tourney.

The championship will kick-start on 2nd January, 2016 in Mumbai. The Grand Finale will take place here in Delhi on 17th January, 2016.
