Invictus Games Düsseldorf 2023 presented by Boeing

The Invictus Games were held in Germany for the first time in 2023. The German Armed Forces and the City of Düsseldorf jointly hosted this unique international sports event from 9th - 16th September.

With the 6th Invictus Games in Düsseldorf, the goal was to give soldiers who are wounded, injured or ill in body and soul a greater awareness and recognition in society and to support their path in rehabilitation.

Under the motto “A HOME FOR RESPECT.” the city, together with the German Armed Forces, welcomed around 500 competitors from 21 nations and approximately 1,000 family members and friends to compete in ten disciplines.

The INVICTUS GAMES DÜSSELDORF 2023 presented by Boeing were a tremendous success and we thank our friends in Germany for welcoming the Invictus Games so warmly in their country.
