Lee Chong Wei And Lin Dan Confirm 2017 All England Entry

Great news for both China and Malaysia, terrible news for everyone else...Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan will both compete at the YONEX All England Champs here in Birmingham! 

Why exactly is the news so damaging for everyone else competiting this March? Well, with nine YONEX All England titles between them and with both players in dominating force, Lin Dan and Chong Wei are serious contenders for this year's championships.

Lin Dan returns to Birmingham to defend his title after a convincing display at last year's YONEX All England tournament. Dan has racked up six YONEX All England wins (2004, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2012 and 2016) and will be eager to cerment his place in history with a seventh title!

Lee Chong Wei hasn't won the competition since 2014, but with the Malaysia superstar currently sitting at the top of the world rankings, he's out to set the records straight and claim the prestigious title once again.

In 2012, Lin Dan and Chong Wei both made it to final leaving fans chomping at the bit...but, due to injury Wei was forced to withdraw from the competiton, making way for Dan's comprait Li Xuerui - who Dan defeated with ease.

Obviously we'd to see a Brit claim the title for the first time in almost 80 years, but, a Lin Dan / Chong Wei final would be a sight to behold!

Don't miss a minute of the action, snap up your YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships now and witness history in the making!
