FAQ

  • What are the Invictus Games?

    The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women, both serving and veterans. The Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect of all those who serve their country.

    The word ‘Invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of the wounded, injured and sick service personnel and what these tenacious men and women can achieve, post injury.Please click here to find out more.

  • Why is the Invictus Games rescheduled?

    In light of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the decision has been taken that the Invictus Games The Hague 2020, presented by Jaguar Land Rover, can no longer take place as planned in May of 2020.

  • Why are you making this decision now, and not waiting until closer to the time?

    The decision was always going to be reviewed at this time, as nations needed to plan travel and training with certainty in the build up to the Games. Of course, it may be that we get to May/June this year and are faced with a different situation than where we are now, but the intent is to be able to be sure and confident in doing what’s best for those taking part.

  • What are the other events you are planning instead?

    We will be announcing these in due course as our priority has been to focus on the future of the Games. As we move forward, we will be looking to announce new partnerships and more digital opportunities to support the recovery journey of the competitors, until such a time as we can travel again.
