Thomas Cup History In Indonesia

There is no doubt that Indonesia is a legend in badminton. The country has the most Thomas Cup championships to date with 14.

Indonesia first tasted victory in the premier men’s team badminton tournament in 1958, beating rival Malaya, 6-3. They repeated twice as champions, defeating Thailand (1961) and Denmark (1964).
A controversial matchup against Malaysia in 1967 ended the Indons’ streak. They turned around their fate just as quick, claiming all contests held in the 1970s (1970, 1973, 1976, 1979).

The next decade saw the emergence of China, but Indonesia managed to sneak in one title in 1984. The Southeast Asian archipelago returned to its winning ways with five straight conquests (1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002).

The 2010s was the only decade Indonesia was not able to lift the cup. Nevertheless, they took the 2020 edition in convincing fashion, sweeping China in the final, to return to the top after almost 20 years.
