Thanks to its success, the inaugural Invictus Games has created the blueprint for inspiring many more ‘wounded warriors’ on their journey of recovery. For every competitor that took part in 2014, there are ten more who could benefit from having the same opportunity.
We want to build on the success of 2014 and broaden the concept in the future. The Invictus Games Foundation was set up to manage the process of selecting the hosts of future games and overseeing their delivery.
Prince Harry and all parties involved had always hoped that the 2014 Games would be just the beginning of the Invictus story and that other cities and countries would take up the challenge and continue the legacy.
Since the end of the Games, The Foundation received a number of bids from potential countries and cities wishing to host the Invictus Games over the coming years.
Following the Invictus Games 2016 which were held in Orlando, Florida, the third Invictus Games will take place in Toronto, Canada from 23 -30 September 2017. Find out more about the Invictus Games Toronto 2017 here.
Prince Harry recently announced that there will be a fourth Invictus Games and that these will be hosted by Sydney from 18-29 October 2018. Find out more here.
