When two great rivals come together, you get the best of rugby.

Castle Lager are proud to be the official title partner of the Castle Lager Lions Series.

After 12 long years, the wait is over. The British & Irish Lions, the greatest touring rugby team in the world will play against the reigning Rugby World Champions, South Africa on their epic tour in 2021.

The British & Irish Lions squad is special as it is made up of the finest rugby players from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. They go on a tour of the Southern Hemisphere (SA, New Zealand and Australia) once every four years, united under the same badge and the same philosophy.

Where the Lions go, there are plenty of fans behind them, and there will be enthusiastic South Africans who will be ready to receive them from stadiums to taverns. Rivals one moment, friends the next, all of them will be united by 133 years of tradition and their love for the game. As a brand that’s about bringing people together, it was appropriate that we get behind this momentous occasion.

The tour will begin on the 3 July and end on the 7 August 2021. During this time the Lions will play warm up matches, touring SA and then they will face the Springboks in three epic Tests.
