It will be ‘Game On Down Under’ when Australia welcomes competitors and their family and friends for Invictus Games Sydney 2018.
Sydney will host 500 competitors and 1,000 family and friends from 20-27 October. The Games will feature competition in 11 sports with events being held across Greater Sydney, including Sydney Olympic Park and Sydney Harbour.
At the closing ceremony of Invictus Games Toronto 2017 HRH The Duke of Sussex challenged us all to do something to effect change in our lives or make a difference in our communities. In answer to The Duke’s call to action the Sydney 2018 team have launched ‘Make Your Mark Down Under’. Find out more here.
Invictus Games 2018 provides an opportunity for long-term impact on the defence community by supporting programs and services across various sectors to encourage greater collaboration and co-operation amongst the veteran and serving community.
“We had three key criteria. First, it had to be an iconic city – somewhere known the world over. Second, it needed to be a city with a proud military heritage, which would welcome competitors from all over the world with open arms. And finally, we wanted to go somewhere where they are absolutely sports mad and would really get behind our competitors. It was an easy decision really – the 2018 Invictus Games are coming to Sydney.”
HRH The Duke of Sussex, Patron of the Invictus Games Foundation
