The BWF Super Series Masters Finals is an annual badminton tournament held at the end of the year where the players with the most points from that calendar year’s twelve events of the BWF Super Series compete for total prize money of at least US$500,000. The Superseries Finals were cancelled in 2007 due to the lack of sponsorship for this tournament.
