Wounded, injured and sick service men and women, both serving and veterans, participate in the international tournament founded by Prince Harry in 2014.

More than 500 competitors from 18 different nations will compete in the tournament from 20 – 27 October 2018 across Sydney.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said hosting the Invictus Games in Sydney would be a proud and historic moment for the state.

“The Invictus Games celebrates our veterans and serving personnel and pays tribute to the strength they have shown in overcoming the kinds of obstacles many of us will never face,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“NSW has a proud history of supporting our servicemen and women, and this fantastic event only solidifies this support throughout the community.”

Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott said the Invictus Games was a hard-won celebration of achievement and determination.

“The NSW veteran and defence community is proud to represent our nation and is determined to make Invictus Games Sydney 2018 one to remember,” Mr Elliott said.
