IOC moves shooting from group D up to group C

Shooting moved from Group D to Group C.

The International Olympic Committee announced a new grouping of Olympic sports for the purposes of the distribution of Olympic revenues to international federations, at a joint meeting of its Executive Board and that of the Association of Olympic International Federations at the SportAccord convention in St Petersburg, on the 29th of May.
Being group A the federation with the largest revenues share, and group E the group with the smaller revenues share, Shooting was elevated from group D up to group C.

The new ranking of existing Olympic sports for revenues share is as follows:
Group A
aquatics; athletics; gymnastics
Group B
basketball; cycling; football (soccer); tennis; volleyball
Group C
Shooting; archery; badminton; boxing; judo; rowing; table tennis; weightlifting
Group D
canoe/kayak; equestrian; fencing; handball; (field) hockey; sailing; taekwondo; triathlon, wrestling
Group E
modern pentathlon; golf; rugby sevens.

IOC proposed to ASOIF this new groups after evaluating sports according to six criteria. Each criteria was assigned a different weight:

• TV (the television audiences that each sport attracted during the games): 40
• Internet (the number of internet page views and social media mentions): 20
• General public (favourite sports, according to a survey): 15
• Spectators (ticket requests in the host territory): 10
• Press (number of favourable press articles): 10
• Universality (number of national federations): 5

The validity of this methodology was guaranteed by CIES, the International Centre for Sports Studies in Lausanne, as IOC authorities explained.
“Shooting was previously ranked in Group D. After the last evaluation our sport has been moved up into Group C. This means that the efforts of the ISSF to improve its visibility on TV and Internet were successful, and that Shooting is becoming more and more popular among sport fans.” ISSF President Olegario Vazquez Rana said.
“We welcome this positive news with great pleasure. Our aim is to keep on improving the status of Shooting on the international panorama.” Secretary General Franz Schreiber said. “The ISSF is doing things right in the fields of management, media and promotion, and this positive news proves it.”
