The Badminton World Federation (BWF) can announce plans for media accreditation for the DANISA Denmark Open 2020 in Odense, Denmark.


Due to the COVID-19 situation and the strict safety protocols and operating procedure in place at the venue in Odense, numbers for media personnel will be severely restricted. The following groups have been pre-approved:

  1. Host Broadcaster
  2. Rights Holding Broadcasters
  3. BWF Appointed Photographers

Local Danish media will be permitted to attend onsite. Please send in your applications to Badminton Denmark Communications and Press Manager, Jonas Kildegaard Rasmussen, by Wednesday 7 October 2020: Numbers are limited.

Note, no other photographers including those representing Danish media will be permitted onto the Field of Play (FOP). Images will instead be supplied by BWF and Badminton Denmark.

Late applications will not be accepted.

All international media interested in attending must contact by Wednesday 7 October 2020. Space is limited at the venue, and with social distancing a necessity in key areas such as the Interview Area, Media Centre and FOP, BWF and Badminton Denmark have made the tough but important decision to only grant media accreditation to selected organisations and personnel. Accreditation will be only awarded on a priority basis at the discretion of BWF.

Both BWF and Badminton Denmark are working on solutions to facilitate access to essential content for media not permitted onsite. This includes images, flash quotes, video interviews, and live stream feed. Note that access will be controlled by BWF. Please sign up via the link below by Friday 9 October 2020:

BWF can also publish its Media Operations & Safety Protocols document for the DANISA Denmark Open 2020. This outlines the relevant procedures and precautions put in place to ensure the health and safety of all players and participants onsite. See attached and here:

Please understand that these decisions are solely to protect players, team entourage and key personnel operating in confined spaces at the DANISA Denmark Open 2020. We trust you understand this reasoning and support BWF’s plans for a safe return to international badminton.
