Host Nation Selection

The host nation India was originally supposed to hold the Sudirman Cup in 2023,[1][2] however due to all events in China getting cancelled in 2021, the Sudirman Cup was moved to Vantaa in Finland with the 2023 Sudirman Cup going to Suzhou, China. India thereby was selected as the hosts of the 2026 BWF Championships due to the transfer of the hosting rights of 2023 Sudirman Cup.[3]
