About 650-700 shooters and officials from 47 countries will descend on the capital’s Dr Karni Singh Range as India braces up to host the year’s first ISSF World Cup, the biggest-ever shooting tournament to be held in the country.

The tournament, starting February 23, will be preceded by International Shooting Sport Federation’s executive board meeting on February 21, which will be chaired by ISSF president Olegario Vázquez Raña.

“As is the case with all World Cups, strong shooting nations such as China, Italy, Germany, Korea, Iran, Australia and USA will be competing in the tournament,” a National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) official said.

A team of technical delegates from Croatia had last month inspected the ranges, the venue for the much-anticipated event.
