SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux says the British and Irish Lions visit to South Africa one year from now, is the greatest thing in rugby after the Rugby World Cup (RWC). Rugby fans can book South Africa A Vs British And Irish Lions Tickets on our website’s exclusively discounted prices.
“I can talk about the British & Irish Lions for a long time – after the Rugby World Cup it’s probably the biggest thing in rugby and we get the opportunity to play them only once every 12 years,” said Roux after it was confirmed the tour will still go ahead next year.
The most significant thing at this stage is that the visit is going on. There might be a date change, however, we can deal with that. The Olympic Games, planned for Tokyo this year, has just been deferred until 2021, while a significant number of the large yearly games have either been rescheduled for later in the year or dropped in 2020.
We’re eager to invite them to South Africa, yet besides about a unique business model – we fundamentally destroyed the course reading and will share incomes, logos, IP, and business esteem with the Lions.
“This is something that will come in very handy in a post-COVID world in terms of the revenues it will create for us, and it will also help us to operate as a going concern going forward.”
Joel Stransky, a Springbok RWC-champ in 1995, passed up playing against the British and Irish Lions in 1997 when he was playing club rugby for English mammoths, Leicester.
A large number of his partners at the Tigers in England visited South Africa with the Lions in 1997, including skipper Martin Johnson, and Stransky got some interesting knowledge into how “the different folks” see the visit.
“Once every four years, players and fans from different nations come together, join hands, put their differences aside and combine as they try to beat one of the old foes from the Southern Hemisphere,” said Stransky on the SA Rugby Podcast.
The Lions are steeped in tradition, culture, respect, and absolute loyalty to that magnificent red jersey – it can never be taken for granted or underestimated.
“Next year will be just magnificent – they will come here with a very strong squad and thousands and thousands of supporters will make the journey to enjoy our country and to be part of this great tour.”
