Prince Harry to Attend Army V Navy Match
Twickenham Stadium, London
Saturday 29th April, 2017
Prince Harry will attend the Army Navy match at Twickenham as Patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, which is the Official Charity of the day for this year’s match.
The Army Navy Match is the annual rugby union match between the senior XV teams of the Royal Navy and British Army. This year sees the 100th fixture since the unions were formed and marks the culmination of the annual Inter-Services Competition.
His Royal Highness will be joined on the day by competitors from the 2014 and 2016 Invictus Games, as well as some of those hoping to be selected for the third Invictus Games in Toronto. Friends and family have also been invited as the Invictus Games Foundation wants to recognise the vital contribution this close support network plays in a competitor’s recovery journey.
Prince Harry will meet the Army and Navy teams before taking his seat amongst competitors. He will also take part in a short half-time interview alongside an Invictus Games competitor and present the Babcock Trophy to the winning team.
The Invictus Games is the only international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women, both serving and veterans. 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 Invictus Games Foundation was set up to pursue and develop the legacy of the Invictus Games. It manages the process of selecting hosts of future Games and overseeing their delivery.
