A tribute for service
Not just a game - an entire season

American football thrives on the mutual respect of the players of both teams for each other and of the fans in the stands.

All fans who will attend Rhein Fire matches this year will not only see a game. It also puts the spotlight on those who have been injured, wounded or fallen ill as a result of their service to the community.

Soldiers defend security and freedom worldwide in public. However, their psychological and physical injuries and illnesses remain invisible to many. Not everyone in Germany has relatives in the Bundeswehr or in the emergency services. The partnership between RHEIN FIRE and the INVICTUS GAMES DÜSSELDORF 2023 presented by Boeing draws attention to the lives and fates of servicemen and women and their personal journey of rehabilitation.
