Prince Harry announced in November 2016 that the fourth Invictus Games had been awarded to Sydney, Australia.
Taking place from 18 – 29 October 2018, these Games will bring together over 500 competitors taking part from 17 nations. They will compete in 11 different adaptive sports with events being held across Greater Sydney, including Sydney Olympic Park and on and around Sydney Harbour.
This will be the Games in which the community embraces those that serve, and have served, and the family and friends that support them; it will inspire the many who on a daily basis battle to turn adversity into opportunity.

“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.”
