Sudirman Cup 2017, the largest badminton tournament in the world which will be held for the first time in Australia from May 21-28 on the Gold Coast.
The Sudirman Cup involves over 1500 of the best male and female badminton players from 32 countries and featuring the stars from Asian badminton powerhouse countries China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia. It is one of the most popular sports in Asia and has an estimated 220 million players across the world.
We are running a Community Ambassador Program on behalf of Badminton Australia, Gold Coast City Council and Tourism Events Queensland to engage student leaders from the participating countries. This is a great opportunity for students to take an active role in the tournament and represent their country of origin.
What is the Sudirman Cup 2017 Student Community Ambassador Program?
The Community Ambassador Program is a program where selected leaders in the participating communities (i.e. Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, Singapore, Indian, Indonesian, Korean, Hong Kong etc) will be awarded an honorary title of a Community Ambassador to spread the key messages about the tournament in any capacity they can, particularly through their personal and social networks and events. Leaders can come from the below list (but not limited to):
- Local student leaders and groups
- University representatives (including University professors, researchers and lecturers etc)
- International student leaders and groups
- Community specific sports clubs on campus
- Badminton players (Male and female badminton current and past players as well as Badminton enthusiasts)
Community Ambassadors can also assist in supporting student groups to attend matches and join other community members from the general community and other universities to come together in official fan groups to support their countries.
Students appointed to the program will receive a uniform, Ambassador kit and tickets to see their country of origin’s qualifying matches.
