The Thomas Cup is the most prestigious and coveted team event in men’s badminton. First held in 1948-49, it is an international competition organized by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) that pits national badminton teams against each other biennially.

Conceived by Sir George Alan Thomas, the Thomas Cup mirrors the Davis Cup in tennis and the FIFA World Cup. The International Badminton Federation embraced his proposal in 1939, heralding a new chapter in competitive badminton

Only six countries have won the 30 editions of the Thomas Cup so far, showcasing the sheer dominance of Asian powerhouses in the sport. Indonesia leads the way with a staggering 14 titles, followed by China with 10 triumphs since joining in 1982. Malaysia has won it five times, while Japan (2014), Denmark (2016) and India (2022) are the other nations to have tasted glory.

The immense popularity of the Thomas Cup can be gauged by the fact that it is played alongside the Uber Cup, the world’s premier tournament for women’s teams. Since 1984, these two prestigious events have been organized concurrently by the BWF at various host nations.
