MIX & MATCH, the new team-format badminton event presented by The Legends’ Vision, scheduled to take place in India and Denmark has been cancelled until further notice. Chinese Taipei on December 26th and Malaysia on December 28th are scheduled as planned.
MIX & MATCH INDIA, originally scheduled for December 19th, sees a cancellation due to the recent news about professional Indian badminton players testing positive for COVID-19. Out of those who tested positive, some were scheduled to participate in MIX & MATCH INDIA. With the health and safety of the athletes being of the upmost importance, event organizers made the decision to cancel until further notice.
MIX & MATCH DENMARK has been dependent upon local COVID safety measures and had yet to set an event date. On December 11th, Denmark extended their lockdown into January to bring infection rates under control, preventing majority sport gatherings including MIX & MATCH DENMARK from taking place. This decision causes MIX & MATCH DENMARK to unavoidably consider new dates in 2021. Captains, Peter Gade and Viktor Axelsen, are working with local event organizers to select the next potential event date.
