The Invictus Games Toronto 2017 Organizing Committee announced on Thursday, June 15, the launch of ticket sales for the fast-approaching multi-sport event.
“The Invictus Games are far more than a seven-day sporting event; they’re a means of rehabilitative therapy for the participating wounded,ill and injured service members and veterans, and their families” said Michael Burns, CEO of Invictus Games Toronto 2017. “The Games also allow the Canadian public to meet them and show their support for our military. We’ll get to watch some incredible sports competition, and see just what these fierce competitors can do.”
Opening Ceremony – September 23
Musical performances by International stars Alessia Cara, Sarah McLachlan and The Tenors will kick off this historic event. French Canadian folk band La Bottine Souriante will also perform, as well as international sensation Laura Wright, who will be joined on stage by the Canadian Military Wives Choir. The ceremony will also feature hundreds of performers, dignitaries and other special guests coming together to pay tribute to the brave competitors of the Invictus Games.
