SC gives go-ahead to Premier Badminton League

MUMBAI: The Premier Badminton League (PBL) is cleared of all hurdles as the Supreme Court today quashed the High Court’s stay order on the league.

The PBL will now kick-start on 2 January in Mumbai where it will bring together India’s top badminton players with international players on the same platform.

BAI president, PBL chairman Dr Akhilesh Das Gupta stated, “Some vested interests were against the spirit of the game and they have been trying to create hurdles. The recent issue raised by them was completely baseless. The Badminton Association of India (BAI) did not even know of any such details. We are grateful to the honourable Supreme Court that has always supported the right and, in this case as well, it has favoured us by quashing the stay order. The Premier Badminton League is now clear of all obstacles and the Supreme Court’s order is a big assurance to all the stakeholders, including franchisees, players, coaches and sponsors.”
