WYG backs Invictus UK

Professional services firm WYG has been unveiled as an official supporter of Invictus UK.

The deal will see WYG support Team UK competitors on their journey to the 2020 Invictus Games in The Hague, Netherlands, through the Invictus UK Trials, which run from July 22-26 in Sheffield.

The Trials will be the largest gathering of UK military wounded adaptive sport competitors. This year the event is set to feature a total of 475 competitors.

WYG will support Invictus UK for three years, a period that will cover next year’s Games in The Hague, which are scheduled for May 9-16.

A key focus of the partnership will be the contribution family and friends make in supporting the recovery of wounded, injured or sick veterans.

The Invictus Games is a multi-sport for wounded servicemen and women.
