The Invictus Games is about much more than just sport – it captures hearts, challenges minds and changes lives. H20 Esports Campus will feature in the Invictus Games with an esports activation zone.
The Invictus Games The Hague 2022, presented by Jaguar Land Rover, will feature 500 competitors, from 20 nations, competing in 10 sports – Archery, Athletics, Cycling, Indoor Rowing, Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge, Powerlifting, Sitting Volleyball, Swimming, Wheelchair Basketball and Wheelchair Rugby. The games will be hosted in The Hague, the Netherlands on 16 – 22 April.
In a special addition to this year’s Games, the Invictus Games Foundation, in partnership with the Global Esports Federation, will feature an esports activation zone powered by Amsterdam esports initiative H20 Esports Campus.
Each entry into this year’s games will be participating across a variety of esports titles, including: League of Legends, Rocket League, Mario Kart and sim racing. H20 Esports Campus will be supplying the tournament infrastructure and equipment from its partners in OMEN by HP, Nintendo, HyperX and sim racing by PlayseatⓇ.
The esports competitions will feature a two hour live stream during the event, April 18-22, on the official Twitch channel of H20 Esports Campus and will be re-streamed on Invictus Games’ channels. Prizes awarded to winners will be courtesy of H20 Esports Campus’s range of partners.
After a two year delay due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the fifth edition of the Game’s organizers are confident that competition will be safely hosted in The Hague, The Netherlands, 16-22 April. Most of the sporting events will be held in and around the Invictus Games Park (Zuiderpark).
Matthijs Vink, CEO of H20 Esports Campus commented: “Gaming and esports are inclusive to everyone across the range of physical abilities. H20 Esports Campus and Invictus Games share values in seeing competition as ways to inspire, motivate, and respect one another. H20 Esports Campus is proud to partner with Invictus Games The Hague 2022 to bring esports and active sports together in a pathway to recovery for the international community of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women. We at H20 look forward to future events both offline and online where we will help grow an online Invictus Games community where there is a place for fun and competition.”
