ISSF's 2016, 2017 and 2018 competitions locations unveiled

The ISSF Executive Committee and the ISSF Administrative Council held their annual meetings in Lonato, Italy, on September 8th and 9th, when they voted on the locations of the 2016, 2017 and 2018 ISSF competitions.

The locations of the 2016, 2017 and 2018 ISSF competitions have been unveiled today.

 

There will be a change in the 2016 ISSF World Cup Series calendar announced last year, as the ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup planned to be held in Granada (ESP) has been moved to Baku (AZE), where a combined Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun World Cup Stage will take place. Both the 2016 ISSF World Cup Finals have been assigned to Italy, as they will be held in Bologna and Rome, respectively for Rifle/Pistol and Shotgun events. Following the success of the 2014 and 2015 editions, 2016 Junior Cups will be held in Suhl (GER) and Gabala (AZE), both including Rifle/Pistol and Shotgun events.

 

In 2017, the ISSF World Cup Series program will be limited to five total stages, which will be held in New Delhi (IND), as a combined Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun World Cup, in Munich (GER) and Gabala (AZE) for Rifle and Pistol events, and in Larnaca (CYP) and Acapulco (MEX) for Shotgun events. The 2017 season will also witness the launch of the ISSF Junior World Championship, with its first edition to be held in Suhl (GER) and including Rifle/Pistol events only. Shotgun junior shooters will have two world-class events to compete among themselves in dedicated age categories: the ISSF Shotgun World Championship in Moscow (RUS), where separate junior finals will be held, and an ISSF Shotgun Junior Cup in Porpetto (ITA).

 

In 2018, a combined ISSF World Cup stage in Changwon (KOR) will serve as a test event of the  52nd ISSF World Championship in all events to be held there from August 31st through September 14th. Another combined World Cup stage will be organized in Guadalajara (MEX), while Shotgun stages will be held in Mosta (MLT) and Tucson (USA). Rifle/Pistol World Cups, then, are scheduled to take place in Munich (GER) and Fort Benning (USA). Two ISSF Junior Cup stages will also be included in the 2018 calendar, in Suhl (GER) and Sydney (AUS), both conducted in Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun events.
