First Online Shooting League to start with clash between Austrian Rocks and Italian Style

New Delhi, June 29: The world's first ever Online Shooting League will start with a clash between Austrian Rocks and Italian Style on July 4, with the Indian team competing the following day.

On July 5, the second day of the league's first weekend, will see Italian Style take on Indian Tigers. French Frogs will face Israel Maabarot on July 10, Austrian Rocks will meet Indian Tigers on July 11 and Spanish Chanos will lock horns with French Frogs on July 12.

The semifinals will be held July 18 and 19, while the final is scheduled for July 26. In between, there is a third-place match lined up for July 25.

Every team will have three rifle shooters and a coach who will all login through the Zoom platform from their locations. A specially designed format called 'Race To Ten' will be used.

"The shooters will shoot a shot each and a point will be awarded to the team which has a higher total of three shots. Whichever team reaches ten points first will win the match," said Shimon Sharif, the brain behind the league.

It will have a total of 10 matches on different days spread over a month and will be streamed live on @indianshooting Facebook page.

Sharif, who competed in the ISSF World Cup at Korea in 2003, said the teams will be allowed to include up to two shooters from other countries. Since it is an online event, team members do not necessarily have to shoot from the same location; they can shoot from anywhere, even from different countries.

The teams with the lowest score in their respective group will be eliminated after the qualification stage over the first three weekends, while the others will advance.
