Fellow Disney Parks Blog author, Darrell Fry was among the first to share the exciting news about the Invictus Games taking place for the first time in the United States, May 8 – 12, 2016 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. These amazing games which celebrate our wounded servicemen and women from around the world, involve over 500 competitors from up to fifteen nations, as they compete in a ten different sporting events, inspiring us to help others who give their live to serve their country, as well as their families and caregivers.
If you’re planning to attend, look for a special selection of merchandise created in honor of the Invictus Games, available to athletes and spectators at select locations at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Items will include adult apparel, youth tee, golf shirt, baseball hat, water bottle, mug, sport sling backpack, magnet and more. Here’s a closer look!
A few of my favorites to consider sporting is the ladies tank which reads — I AM Brave-Strong-Tough-Noble-Willing-Able, the Invictus Games – The Captain of My Soul event T-shirt, the spectator T-shirt and last but certainly not least the performance jackets.
Finally, I couldn’t pass up the chance to give you a sneak peek at the specially created lanyard and some of the trading pins that will be available, themed to each sport. While I’m not able to show them all to you right now, I hope that you will be joining in the excitement of the Invictus Games and can check them out for yourself.
I’m sure that Darrell will be sharing many more details on this momentous event, so keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest information.
