VANCOUVER, BC – June 26, 2024 – The Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025, presented by ATCO and Boeing, will be spectacular, empowering and affordable. The family-friendly celebrations will honour the power of sport in the recovery journey of international wounded, injured and sick Veterans and active service members. Patrick Roberge Productions (PRP), Canada’s premiere ceremonies production team, will create the marquee events hosted in two of the country’s most iconic event venues – BC Place and Rogers Arena – with an invitation to support and experience the unconquerable human spirit and the power of the Invictus Games. 

Preregistration for ticket sales is open now!

Vancouver’s own PRP was selected to kick off and wrap up the nine days of life-changing summer and winter adaptive sports competition, based on their proven track record of creating engaging, emotive events that capture the hearts of spectators and competitors alike. Their impressive ceremonies and events portfolio includes the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Winter Games at BC Place, seven Canada Games, 13 Grey Cup Games, 2023 North American Indigenous Games, FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 and the Invictus Games Toronto 2017.   

B.C. Pavilion Corporation (PavCo), owned by the Government of BC, and Canucks Sports and Entertainment (CSE) have partnered with Games organizers on venue usage, complete with state-of-the-art production opportunities, easy access, major-event spectator capacity and elevated spectator services. The Opening Ceremony at BC Place is planned with a family-friendly start time of 1:00 p.m. PST on Saturday, February 8th, and the Closing Ceremony at Rogers Arena is planned to start at 7:00 p.m. PST on Sunday, February 16th.  

“Inspired by the courageous spirit of the Invictus family — wounded, injured, and sick service members and Veterans and their family and friends — we want to touch the heart of everyone in the Ceremonies venues and watching on broadcast,” said Scott Moore, CEO, the Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025. “With our world class production team of PRP and venue partners PavCo and CSE onboard, we’re set on delivering the best Invictus Games start and finish ever. With the invaluable support of our Founding Partners – the Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, and True Patriot Love Foundation – we’re well positioned for success. So mark your calendar for these not-to-be-missed events and as planning progresses, we’ll be sharing details on ticketing, broadcast, international performing artists and more.” 

PavCo has worked closely with the Organizing Committee on strategic planning and has opened its doors to its world-class venues, offering the Vancouver Convention Centre as a distinguished host venue and BC Place as the grand stage for the Opening Ceremony.  

CSE has also worked closely with the Organizing Committee since the bid phase, working collaboratively on strategic planning, generously donating the rental of Rogers Arena as a Ceremony venue, and helping to raise awareness and drive excitement within the communities of Vancouver and Whistler.  

On the strength of the invitation to their home from the Four Host First Nations – Lil̓wat7úl (Líl̓wat), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), the 2025 Invictus Games were awarded to Vancouver and Whistler. The Four Host First Nations will be integral to every aspect of the Ceremonies, including honouring their traditions by officially naming the events “Opening Ceremony: Welcome” and “Closing Ceremony: Celebration”.    

The Ceremonies are being planned to ensure affordability through both family-friendly event timing, ticket pricing and availability. More details including ticketing information, talent lineup and broadcast information will be released in the coming months at Sign up to be in the know.
