Join MSG in South Africa on our British and Irish Lions 2021 unofficial supporters tours.

The romance of the 2017 British and Irish Lions tour may be a distant memory but it’s already time to focus on the 2021 Lions tour to South Africa.

Times are a-changing as witnessed by the Lions Committee reducing the next tour from 10 to 8 matches. The abbreviation may put pressure on the coaching panel, although it’ll do nothing to stem the enthusiasm for the 30,000 fans expected to travel from the UK and Ireland to support those fortunate enough to be selected to represent the famous crest against the new world champions. The traditional tour window of June has been moved to July in line with the 2017 San Francisco Agreement. You can register for the British and Irish Lions Ticket Ballot from the 31st of March 2020, with the ballot taking place over two weeks Friday 3 July – Friday 17 July.

Lions 2021 Tour Packages

After numerous inspection visits and detailed planning, we are excited to present our 9 Lions 2021 South Africa supporters packages for you to choose from:

Becoming a Lion

With the most celebrated of all Rugby World Cups in Japan embedded in our memories, the first buds of a wider Lions squad will emerge on Warren Gatland’s notepad. A season back home in NZ with the Chiefs will do the general no harm in sharpening his skills for the 12 month contract to lead players into the most exciting of Lions arenas against the 2019 RWC winners. The British and Irish Lions committee have announced that the Lions 2021 tour will be taking place between the 3rd of July and 7th of August. The Lions tour will grace six cities allowing rugby fans to experience the very best of the Rainbow Nation.

MSG’s action-packed, comprehensive Inspection Visit to South Africa explored no less than 32 hotels, 20 towns & cities amongst truly unique landscapes. Big 5 sightings on safari, South Africa’s answer to the Orient Express and views that take your breath away were all experienced in an action packed 8 days.  A few glasses of Stellenbosch’s reds and whites were consumed along the way for pure educational purposes 🙂

Our objective: to pressure Test itineraries, transportation, hotel partners and excursions to ensure nothing but the very best for all our customers. For the purpose of #DeliveringTheUnexpected in 2021, you will have to wait on some little (and big) gems that were discovered. Read more about our thoughts over on the blog.
