India will host the archery and shooting events at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, six months before the main event in Birmingham.

The proposal was put forward by India who threatened to boycott Birmingham 2022 after shooting was excluded.

Both events will take place in Chandigarh in January 2022, with the main games from 27 July to 7 August.

The move to India was approved by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) Executive Board.

Chandigarh 2022 and Birmingham 2022 will be separately organised and funded, but medals will count towards the overall competition.

genuinely disappointed that the CGF have caved into India's hissyfit... looking forward to other countries trying to decide if they're important enough to pull the same stunt to host a sport that they happen to be good enough at to win medals... How long until there is no single games, but a series of sports "championships" over a year in a variety of locations... This might be the end of the concept of the Commonwealth Games.
