Badminton's biennial Thomas and Uber Cup 2021 tournament is scheduled to take place in Aarhus, Denmark from October 9 -17. The tournament was postponed last year due to the Coronavirus induced lockdown.
A total of sixteen teams will contest the Thomas Cup, the world men's team championships, whereas another sixteen teams will compete in the Uber Cup, the women's team.
It also marks the the second major tournament in three weeks for most of the players, who were also competing in the Sudirman Cup. China bagged the mixed-team world championship title for the 12th time at the recently concluded Sudirman Cup.
In the thirty editions of the Thomas Cup, only five nations have managed to win the title - China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan and Denmark.
The statistics are similar for the Uber Cup, where China has won the title 14 times, more than any other nation in the 27 editions of the tournament.
