Apart from these, a shooting range with a seating capacity of nearly 800 has also been developed at the Noida Stadium. This shooting range offers a practice facility for 10 metre pistol, and 25 metre and 50 metre rifle. Both these projects are located inside the stadium.

The CM advised players to just focus on their practice and their aim, and assured them the government is fully committed towards fulfilling all their needs.

Work on the indoor stadium was started on February 12, 2015, with a completion target of June 30, 2018, while the shooting range work was started on October 12, 2015 with a deadline of March 31, 2018. However, both projects got delayed due to slow pace of work.
