The British & Irish Lions have announced TikTok as the official creator platform for the 2021 Tour to South Africa, bringing rugby fans closer to the action.

As part of the new partnership, the video-sharing social networking platform will be hosting a series of LIVEs with both the Lions and South Africa to take supporters behind-the-scenes.

The official creator platform will provide the inside look at life on Tour – from pre- and post-match takeovers, interviews with the players and an exclusive look at the team’s training sessions.

One of these exciting LIVEs will be ‘Cooking For Performance’ with the team chef Andre Moore, who will provide a tour of the kitchen and give an insight into what he cooks for the players.

Moore will also reveal how he plans ahead to source ingredients for Warren Gatland’s men and even show how he makes his favourite healthy, protein-based snacks.

Fans can also expect a ‘Hosted Team Environment Tour’ on August 4 at 11.00 BST, which will provide a look at the team’s recovery pools, outside space, nutrition table and games room.

Follow the official TikTok account for The British & Irish Lions [@lionsofficial] to make sure you don’t miss out on all the exclusive content over the Tour in July and August.
