The event will be held in Chandigarh, the capital of the northern Indian states of Punjab and Haryana, and is scheduled to be staged in January 2022.

The decision confirmed that Chandigarh 2022 and Birmingham 2022 will be two separately organised and funded Commonwealth Sport events.

The medal tally for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will include results from the Chandigarh 2022 Commonwealth Shooting Championships.

Shooting Australia will continue to keep Member Organisations informed of further developments.
