KPN official supporter Invictus Games Den Haag 2020

KPN, together with Heineken, Philips, SAP, and Shell will be an official supporter of the Invictus Games The Hague 2020. This sporting event, to be held from 9-16 May 2020, uses the power of sport to stimulate the recovery and support the rehabilitation of physically and mentally wounded service personnel. The Games also generate a broader understanding and respect for those who serve or who have served their country.

The support of these five companies for the Invictus Games The Hague 2020 is hugely important for the success of this unique sporting event. Chairman of the organizing committee of Invictus Games The Haag 2020 Mart de Kruif says:

“The promises of these partners to connect, improve, increase sustainability and share experiences connect seamlessly with those of the Invictus Games The Hague 2020. We want to create a perfect event for the 500 participants, but also for the, in total, 1,000 friends and/or family members, who they can bring with them at the expense of the organization. The support of these partners is priceless in this regard. The participants show us that the power of the human spirit is unbeatable. Because we are pursuing the same goal together, we can join forces and help and reach as many people as possible.”

KPN connects
“KPN has already been connecting people for more than 135 years; we do that with ‘the network of the Netherlands’ and, of course, by supporting large-scale events such as this year’s Invictus Games 2020, the Eurovision Song Contest, and SAIL 2020”, explains Mark Versteegen, KPN’s sponsorship director. “The Invictus Games is a special event where the participants get the best out of themselves and where there is a huge feeling of togetherness. We hope that The Hague and the surrounding area will turn out to watch this wonderful event.”
