A key element of the Games is the family and friends programme. The intention is to allow competitors and their friends and family to share the Invictus Games experience, and to recognise and thank friends and family for the role they play in supporting WIS in their journey of rehabilitation and recovery.
At a minimum there will be a basic package for at least 2 family members or friends accompanying each competitor incorporating free accommodation and transport in country, free access to the game and preferential access to competitors. The Invictus Games will be structured in a way that enables family and friends of the competitors to attend the Games and/or enhances the family and friends experience of the games. Costs can be minimised for transport by selecting hotels “downtown”, so the F&F will be in the heart of the city across only 3 hotels, all just a few kilometres away from the main venue at Zuiderpark (Invictus Games Park), easily accessible through public transport as well as per coach transfer.
First and foremost: all people participating in or involved with the Invictus Games will feel a very warm welcome and will reside in an environment showing the utmost respect.
