Schedule for Lions 2021 Tour to South Africa announced

53

In less than two years time, the British and Irish Lions will head to South Africa to take on the reigning World Cup Champions in a three-test tour.

In 2017, they faced the then World Champions New Zealand where they played out a thrilling series which ended 1-1, with the third test finishing in a draw.

The first game is against the DHL Stormers on July 3, 2021 in Cape Town.

The first South Africa Test takes place in Johannesburg on July 24, before they travel to Cape Town a week later.

The tour concludes a week later with the final test in Johannesburg.
