Yesterday, Prince Harry announced via video that the 2022 Invictus Games will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Harry, who also serves as the Invictus Games Foundation Patron, said in a statement, “Germany has been a key part of the Invictus Games family since the very start in 2014 and I know that they will be exemplary hosts in picking up the mantle and showcasing what sport continues to do for these inspirational men and women in their recovery.”
The announcement comes as competitors prepare for the fifth iteration of the 2020 Invictus Games, which are to take place this May in The Hague, Netherlands. The games, which were first held in London in 2014, are an international sports competition that brings together wounded or sick servicemen and women with the purpose of supporting rehabilitation and recovery.
Harry also mentioned two new international additions to the competition. “As we look ahead to the upcoming Invictus Games The Hague 2020, I’m delighted that two new nations, Belgium and the Republic of Korea, will be taking part for the first time,” the Duke of Sussex said, “bringing the number of nations in the Invictus Family to 20 in 2020.”
In total, more than 500 competitors from 20 nations will attend the 2020 Invictus Games in The Hague.
