CGF statement on India proposal for Commonwealth Shooting and Archery Events
CGF CEO David Grevemberg CBE said: “The CGF can confirm that it has now officially received a proposal from Commonwealth Games India (CGI) to host a Commonwealth shooting event and potentially an archery event in India during 2022, the year of the XXII Commonwealth Games.
“The proposal is supported by the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI), the Government of India, the International Shooting Sport Federation and World Archery.
“The proposal will be reviewed and considered in January and February by the CGF and discussed with Birmingham 2022 Delivery Partners.
“Key aspects of this assessment will be to ensure that the proposal conforms with our rules and regulations, is operationally deliverable, sets manageable precedents for the Commonwealth Games and ultimately adds value to athletes and the Commonwealth Sports Movement.
“Finally, we would like to thank the CGI, the NRAI, the Government of India and the entire sporting community of India for their leadership and significant efforts taken to submit an innovative proposal with the ambition of strengthening Commonwealth Sport.”
