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. The fifth edition of the Invictus Games will be held in The Hague, The Netherlands in 2020, 75 years after the city’s liberation.
