The inaugural Invictus Games were held in London in September 2014. HRH Duke of Sussex, Patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, and the organising committee of the London 2014 Games always hoped that this event would be the beginning of the ‘Invictus’ story and that other cities and countries around the world would take up the challenge.

Since then, the Invictus Games have been held in Orlando, USA in 2016 and Toronto, Canada in 2017. The fourth iteration of the Invictus Games is taking place in Sydney, Australia this October from the 20th-27th.

In light of the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, the Board of the Invictus Games The Hague 2020, along with the Invictus Games Foundation, are forced to conclude that organising the Invictus Games The Hague 2020, presented by Jaguar Land Rover, can no longer take place as planned from 9 to 16 May 2020.

We are now investigating all options to reschedule the Invictus Games, subject to the availability of key facilities and resources, to May or June 2021. Significant planning to scope and confirm this option is underway.
