The Invictus Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women.

Following the inaugural Invictus Games in 2014, the Invictus Games Foundation was set up to develop the legacy of Games which includes manage the process of selecting the hosts of future games and oversee their delivery.

The second Invictus Games was held in Orlando, Florida in May 2016. The Invictus story will continue with the 2017 Invictus Games taking place in Toronto, Canada from 24 - 30 September 2017, followed by the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 in October 2018.

“These Games have shone a spotlight on the ‘unconquerable’ character of servicemen and women, their families and the ‘invictus’ spirit.”

Prince Harry

“Up until my awareness of the Invictus Games, all I had been doing was living in memories. In my mind my life has been over and I was just waiting to be done because I’m not capable of doing or living like I used to. I‘m starting to think however, that my game has just begun.”
