The badminton tournament was rescheduled to be held between 15-23 August in Denmark but the Badminton World Federation (BWF) and Badminton Denmark are now seeking clarification from Danish authorities on the definition of "larger gatherings".

"....and how this might affect the ability to stage the TOTAL BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals 2020 on the rescheduled dates of 15-23 August," the BWF said in a statement.

"BWF and Badminton Denmark, along with tournament organisers, Sport Event Denmark and the local Aarhus government, will continue to work towards a solution and will make a further announcement once more information comes to hand," the statement added.

BWF also acknowledged that the AGM 2020 and BWF Members' Forum, both key events on the BWF calendar, could also be affected.
