The British and Irish Lions could tour the Americas as part of Agustin Pichot’s vision to globalize the sport if he is elected World Rugby chairman. Rugby fans can book British and Irish Lions Tour Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
Pichot wants the Lions to travel to new destinations as well as the traditional territories of Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
The Argentine is running against incumbent Sir Bill Beaumont and he wants to revolutionize the sport, despite being snubbed by the Six Nations unions. If he wins, he hopes to open talks with the Lions to see if they will collaborate with him.
‘People think I don’t like tradition, but I speak to Lions players like Brian O’Driscoll and it’s a great product,’ Pichot told Sports mail. ‘I love it. There is still room for the Lions. It is a traditional thing but we can still add a modern look to it.
‘I would use the Lions on a more worldwide scale. I would like to see that brand travel even further. They would be very popular in North and South America but that’s a conversation to have with the CEO of the Lions.’
Entering the final week of campaigning, Beaumont and Pichot are lobbying to win the 11 remaining swing votes. Pichot has the support of the SANZAAR unions, but he revealed his email proposals did not even receive a reply from five of the Six Nations unions.
I would like to talk to each union,’ said Pichot. ‘I sent a personal note to every country and I haven’t had any replies from some of the CEOs. Rugby fans can book British and Irish Lions Tour Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
‘I only received one email asking me about the future of the game from the Six Nations unions that was Wales and I think that’s poor. Every CEO should be responsible for learning what is best for the game, even if they don’t support you.’
Beaumont’s re-election bid has suffered a blow after World Rugby started an inquiry into allegations of homophobia against Fiji Rugby Union chairman Francis Kean, who has a conviction for manslaughter and whose organization seconded Beaumont’s nomination.
