The Duke of Sussex, Patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, announced that the sixth Games – to be held in September 2023 – will be hosted in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Invictus Games Foundation announced in 2020 that the Invictus Games The Hague and Düsseldorf will both be delayed by a year to accommodate the lockdown guidelines. The Invictus Games Düsseldorf will now take place between 9th – 16th September, 2023.  

The Invictus Games Düsseldorf 2023 presented by Boeing will bring together over 500 competitors from 22 nations to compete in a series of adaptive sports. For the first time, the Invictus Games will be co-hosted between the Bundeswehr as a military organization and the city of Dusseldorf.

The established sports city of Düsseldorf is the ideal venue for this international sports festival. As a cosmopolitan, tolerant, culture-loving city, it is home to 640,000 inhabitants from 180 nations. These are excellent conditions for welcoming the Invictus community and visitors from all over the world to the Rhine in 2023.

Together with the German Armed Forces, the discourse for more respect and recognition will be initiated. The vision A HOME FOR RESPECT gets its home here. For people who are willing to take great personal risks in the service of freedom and democracy.
