President Lisin and Secretary General Ratner worked together (in the same positions) in the European Shooting Confederation since 2013, proving to be a winning team.

The dates of the Championship will be decided - and communicated on this website - later on.

ISSF Competitions

The General Assembly decided to postpone the review of the ISSF Competitions Calendar (and the world championship scheduling) for the Olympic cycle 2021-2024 to a possible ISSF Extraordinary General Assembly to be held in 2019.

Concerning the current Olympic cycle (2016-2020), and upon a proposal of the German Shooting Federation, the planned 2020 Junior World Cup to be hosted in Suhl (GER) was upgraded to an ISSF Junior World Championship.

The 2019 ISSF Junior World Cup planned to be held in Lima (PER) was cancelled.

The General Assembly received an update on the preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games by Mr Peter Underhill. Tokyo 2020 Shooting sport events will be held at the Asaka shooting venue, located 23Km from the the Olympic Village, some 50 minutes drive. This will be a temporary venue set in a green area at some 4km from the town of Asaka, studied for the maximum sustainability. The Shooting venue will provide a combined 10-meter / 50-meter range and a combined 25-meter / Finals Hall. Three combined Trap and Skeet layouts surrounded by a lead-recoil net will be constructed for the conduction of Shotgun events. The competitions will be conducted over 11 days, from July 25 to August 3, 2020. The test event is planned to take place in April 2020.

On Sunday, December 2, a new era for the ISSF will officially start, as President Lisin leads his first ISSF Administrative Council, here at the Hilton Park Hotel in Munich, Germany. The Council will be asked to vote for the members of the Section Committees and to form the Executive Committee.
