The Premier Badminton League is all set to kick off from the 20th of January 2020 in Chennai. A total of seven teams will fight each other to take the crown of the fifth season. Kidambi Srikanth led Bengaluru Raptors had won the title last season. Two of the biggest badminton stars of India, Srikanth and Saina Nehwal will not be a part of the tournament this year after the duo decided to give themselves rest to prepare for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

The seven teams will play against each other in the round robin format with the top four teams moving to the semifinals. Every tie will have five matches, and will be given points on the number of matches won. A total of 21 round-robin ties will be played across three venues this year, followed by two semifinal matches and the finals.

The 21-day badminton extravaganza will feature the top players from the world pitted against each other. On the opening day of the tournament, PV Sindhu's Hyderabad Hunters will take on Chennai Superstarz who have young players like Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Lakshya Sen. After Kidambi decided to give PBL 2020 a miss, the current world number two Tai Tzu Ying will be the flag bearer for Bengaluru Raptors.

Having lost all their final matches in the previous editions, Mumbai Rockets would be looking to grab their hands on the first title this year with the likes of Parupalli Kashyap and Lee Dong Keun in their team. It will also be the first time that the coveted mixed doubles pair of Chris Adcock and Gabrielle Adcock will not be playing in the same team. Chris will play for Pune 7 Aces along with Chirag Shetty and Hendra Setiawan while Gabrielle will represent the Chennai Superstarz.

The league will begin at the Jawarharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Chennai and will then move to the Babu Banarasi Das U.P. Badminton Academy in Lucknow. Hyderabad will host a total of 15 ties, including the two semifinals and the finals.
