The city of Nanchang has been chosen to host the final phase of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) World Championship. The dates are yet to be decided, as there are many entities that still need to come together to unify criteria. Additionally, the deadline for submitting bids to host the BWF World Championships in 2025 and 2026 is set for December 1. That decision will be postponed to early January.
