Press release: The Invictus Games The Hague 2020 welcomes Boeing as Premier Partner

The Invictus Games Foundation is pleased to welcome Boeing as Official Partner in a multi-year agreement supporting international wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans. Boeing is also announced as Premier Partner to the upcoming Invictus Games The Hague 2020, presented by Jaguar Land Rover, and to the Invictus Games Düsseldorf 2023.

“We are very grateful for the long-term support of Boeing for the Invictus Games movement. This builds upon their sponsorship of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 and now extends to a multi-year Games partnership agreement in a first for the Foundation,” said Invictus Games Foundation CEO Dominic Reid. “Our work supporting international wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women through sport is only made possible by partners such as Boeing, which has committed to long term support for veterans and their wider community.”

The partnership will provide funding for the Foundation to continue to inspire the recovery of international wounded, injured and sick veterans and service personnel through the power of sports, esports and adventurous challenges. In particular, this extends to the work of the Foundation beyond the Games, to improve ongoing access to recovery and rehabilitation programs, including Invictus Endeavours, and will allow the Foundation to develop best practices and research to support the international veterans community.

“At Boeing, we are committed to supporting transitioning military service members, veterans and their families globally,” said Ziad Ojakli, Boeing’s executive vice president of Government Operations. “We do this by funding employment readiness programs for transitioning service members and their spouses as well as through our support of organizations like the Invictus Games Foundation, which work to improve the physical, mental and emotional well-being of veterans and their families. I am excited about the reach of this incredible partnership and look forward to a great competition.”

In 2021, Boeing contributed more than €11 million in support of veterans workforce transition and recovery and rehabilitation programs globally. Over the past five years, Boeing has contributed more than €10 million to support charitable organizations across Europe – this includes approximately €1 million for programs that support veterans and their families living on the continent.

“On behalf of our 140,000 Boeing teammates around the world, including the approximately 20,000 veterans in our ranks, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all those competing in this year’s Invictus Games,” said Sir Michael Arthur, senior vice president of Boeing and president of Boeing International. “As part of our longstanding support of the veterans community across the world, Boeing is proud to sponsor this year’s games and celebrate the achievements and dedication of all Invictus Games competitors.”

This year, the Games are taking place April 16 – 22 in the Netherlands after two delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Featuring 500 competitors from 20 nations taking part in 10 sports, the Games will also bring together family members and friends of the competitors to acknowledge their role in recovery, post-injury or illness. The Invictus Games Düsseldorf 2023 will take place in Germany, September 9 – 16, 2023.

About Invictus Games The Hague 2020

De Invictus Games is een internationaal sportevenement voor fysiek en/of mentaal gewonde militairen. De Invictus Games gebruikt de kracht van sport om herstel te stimuleren, revalidatie te ondersteunen en breder begrip en respect te genereren voor hen die hun land dienen of gediend hebben.

‘Invictus’ staat voor ‘onoverwonnen’. Het symboliseert de vechtlustige geest, van fysiek en/of mentaal gewonde militairen. Het laat zien wat je, ondanks je verwondingen, kunt bereiken.

Aan de Invictus Games, die in het voorjaar van 2022 in Den Haag worden gehouden, doen 500 deelnemers mee, uit 20 verschillende landen. Zij zullen actief zijn in tien verschillende sporten.

Alle deelnemers mogen, op uitnodiging en kosten van de organisatie, twee vrienden of familieleden die hebben geholpen tijdens het revalidatieproces meenemen naar het evenement.

Iedere deelnemer aan de Invictus Games heeft zijn eigen verhaal, maar allen hebben ze de innerlijke kracht gevonden om door te gaan en zichzelf op te richten. Alleen, met hulp van familie en vrienden, maar altijd mede dankzij de kracht van sport.


The Invictus Games is an international adaptive sporting event for Wounded, Injured and Sick Servicemen and women, both serving and veteran. The Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect of all those who serve their country.

The word ‘Invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and personifies what these tenacious men and women can achieve post injury.

The Invictus Games is about much more than just sport – it captures hearts, challenges minds and changes lives.

The Invictus Games 2020 will be held in The Hague in the spring of 2022 and invites 500 competitors, from 19 different countries. They will participate in 10 different sports.
All competitors may bring two friends or family members who have helped during the rehabilitation process, at the invitation and expense of the organization.

The participants all have their own story of physical and/or psychological injury or illness. But all of them have found the inner strength to go on and reinvent themselves. Sometimes alone, often with the help of family and friends, but always through the power of sport. The Invictus Games The Hague 2020 is the platform to share their stories and add another chapter to their book of life.
