Lions & SA Rugby delay on-sale dates for tickets and Tour packages
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the British & Irish Lions and SA Rugby have jointly agreed to postpone the on-sale dates for the ticket ballots in both Europe and South Africa, as well as the supporter travel programme, for the South Africa 2021 Test series.
The ticket ballot in South Africa and the release of the ticket-inclusive supporter travel packages for the eagerly awaited Test series next year were initially due to be launched in April 2020, with the ticket ballot in Europe set to launch in July, but a decision to delay has now been agreed by both organisations.
More information on the revised sale dates for the ticket ballots as well as the supporter travel packages will be communicated in due course via the Lions and SA Rugby websites.
Supporters who have purchased the Priority Access Pass, which entitles them to first option to purchase a wide-range of ticket-inclusive holiday packages, will be contacted directly via email.
“As I am sure our supporters will understand, both unions didn’t think it appropriate to make tickets and our 2021 Tour packages available for purchase at these times,” said Ben Calveley, Managing Director for the British & Irish Lions.
“We hope to be able to announce new sales dates in the near future, but until then we would like to wish everyone the best of health in these unprecedented times.”
Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby, said: “The British & Irish Lions Tour is a significant event for us in South Africa but we are aware everyone’s priorities are in doing everything they can to fight the COVID-19 pandemic – and we are no exception. We ask our passionate rugby supporters to please bear with us during this difficult time.”
