The British and Irish Lions are currently touring South Africa.
All matches will be played in either Cape Town, Pretoria or Johannesburg, with the latter to host the final two Tests of the tour. Ellis Park and FNB Stadium will be the locations in Johannesburg, Loftus Versfeld plays host to the match in Pretoria, while Cape Town Stadium the other venue used. The confined nature of the fixtures is to minimise the health risk associated with playing the tour during the pandemic.
The British and Irish Lions played Japan in Scotland before heading to South Africa. They started the tour proper with a match against provincial side the Lions – brought onto the fixture list in place of the originally slated match-up against a South African Invitational XV – before encounters against the Sharks, Bulls, South Africa A, and Stormers.
The three-Test series against the Springboks followed follow after that, beginning on July 24 (July 25 Australian time).
