Shooting in Singapore

The IOC is putting the finishing touches to the programme for the first Olympic eSports Week, which is to be held from 22 to 25 June 2023 in Singapore. A tenth sport has been added: shooting. In collaboration with the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF), the game Fortnite will be featured in the finals of the first global eSports festival, which was conceived and developed by the IOC. In addition, the Olympic body has unveiled the ticketing for the event. It is very accessible. Tickets for the competitions held in Singapore are on sale for 10 Singapore dollars per day, or about 7 euros at the current rate, with three-day passes starting at 20 dollars. The Olympic eSports Series finals will be held on Friday 23 June for archery, cycling, dance and sailing; on Saturday 24 June for baseball, taekwondo, shooting sports and tennis; and on Sunday 25 June for motor sport and chess.
