As the outbreak has plagued the world for more than a year, people from all walks of life have been affected to varying degrees. The aim of the Malaysia Purple League has always been to promote badminton in the country and to create a platform for players to become the next badminton champion.

In the past, MPL has hosted group leagues played by various clubs. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the league organiser will be hosting the Top Glove Purple League Pro-Am 2020, sponsored by Top Glove, an individual event aimed at creating a competitive platform for independent professional players.

The 2020 Top Glove Purple League PLPA, originally slated in September, was delayed for about three months due the recent conditional movement control order (CMCO) regulations set by the government. The tournament will be held from 29 December 2020 to 3 January 2021 at Kompleks Kejiranan Precinct 11, Putrajaya.

Organizers expressed their hope that the event will give independent players a chance to return to the badminton arena and win prize money of more than RM100,000. The inaugural event is divided into three individual events, namely men’s singles, men’s doubles, mixed doubles, and the elimination round.

Some former national team stars who have confirmed their participation are Daren Liew, Soong Joo Ven and Iskandar Zulkarnain. The drawing ceremony for this event will be conducted tomorrow (23 December) in an open and transparent manner.

Purple League chief operation officer, Ho Khek Mong thanked Top Glove for delivering a silver lining to badminton as this is seen as a great initiative to support Malaysia’s independent professional players.

As a player before, he understands that what professional players, especially independent players need most now is to the chance to play, in order to get back in shape and improve on their world ranking.

He added that the tournament was mainly about promoting players over the age of 18, as many players need to decide whether to continue with their studies or work when they reach the age of 17 or 18 because of the limited number of professional events in the country for 18-year-olds.

“In fact, the players are relatively mature, so we hope to help players over the age of 18 improve their level of play and progress to world stage through the Top Glove Purple League Pro-Am Competition 2020. When the platform stabilizes in the future, we will turn it into a perennial year-end Cup,” added Ho.

MPL thanked the Putrajaya Badminton Club for showing great support towards this event, and this collaboration is a sign of badminton clubs and the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) complementing each other for the betterment of Malaysia’s badminton.

Ho stresses that “The main objective of this tournament is to create another competitive platform to develop more talented players as many of the 18-year-olds in the state teams belong to private clubs. Thus, the aim and creation of Pro- Am 2020 is to urge clubs to continue grooming talented players.  This competition will not only allow these up-and-coming players to play in a competitive platform, but also have the opportunity to be absorbed by the clubs and even the national team.”

The players who have won the national under-21 and under-18 doubles and mixed doubles titles in recent years are players from the clubs and MPL hopes that this tournament will bring back the badminton actions ahead of the next season and allow independent players to return to the game after not being able to be in action for approximately 10 months.

He believes that after more than half a year of break, he can feel the hunger and thirst of the players, hence this competition will be one full of suspense. Anticipating high viewership, Ho urged badminton fans to be on the watch out.

In addition to Top Glove Purple League Pro-Am 2020, the media can brace themselves for more excitement in the upcoming tournaments organised by MPL such as SENHENG redOne Purple League 2020/2021, AEON Credit Purple League Junior 2020, Bizlink Property Purple League Corporate 2020/2021 among other events.
