Help for Heroes has been replaced by the Royal British Legion to deliver the Invictus Games, the event for wounded service personnel set up by Prince Harry.
The decision ends Help for Heroes involvement with the event, which was launched by the Duke of Sussex in 2014.
In a statement, Help for Heroes said that “this was not a decision we made ourselves”.
“The MOD considered proposals from the Invictus UK partnership and have chosen this route moving forwards.”
The charity added: “Our focus now is on helping more people across the UK, within their communities, as part of keeping our promise to be here for wounded veterans for as long as they need us.
“Of course, we will continue to cheer on Team UK and look forward to seeing what the Invictus Games achieves in the future.”
Under the new arrangement for the game the Royal British Legion will deliver the games and be the main funder for the programme for the next five years.

The RBL has been involved with the games since 2016 through supporting family and friends of competitors.
“We have been asked by the MOD to take on a greater role in delivering TEAM UK to the Invictus Games and we’re really looking forward to playing our part in future Team UK successes by supporting the participants, veterans and friends and family.”
