Castle Lager named as title partner of British lions 2021 series

South Africa Rugby and the British & Irish Lions have announced that Castle Lager has agreed to become the official title partner of the 2021 Tour of South Africa.

The Castle Lager Lions Series kicks off on Saturday, 3 July 2021 with the Lions visiting some of the most impressive stadiums in world sport, culminating in three Test matches against Rugby World Cup-champions the Springboks. Rugby fans can book British lions 2021 tickets on our website at exclusively discounted prices.

The announcement comes in the wake of the massive interest in the Castle Lager Lions Series from South African rugby supporters. More than 324,000 applications for tickets were made, with tickets for the three-Test matches being massively oversubscribed.

 ‘This represents a hat-trick for our friends at South African Breweries,’ SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux said. ‘They have now been the series partner for all three British & Irish Lions tours to South Africa in the professional era: first under the Lion brand in 1997 and now with Castle Lager for the 2009 and 2021 tours.

‘It’s a tribute both to their enduring support for South African rugby but also to the appeal of the sport and a tour by the British & Irish Lions.

‘The first two professional series to South Africa were epic events that entranced the rugby nation. I am sure next year’s edition will be the same.’

Today’s announcement coincides with the launch of the Castle Lions Series dedicated website, www.lionsseries.com, and social channels, where rugby supporters can keep up to date with all the latest Tour news, read and watch exclusive content, as well as enter competitions to win merchandise.

The Castle Lager Lions Series begins on Saturday, 3 July 2021 when the Lions face the Stormers in Cape Town. Three weeks later the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg will host the first Test – a venue that previously hosted the 2010 Fifa World Cup Final.

The second Test follows on Saturday, 31 July at the Cape Town Stadium – the first Lions Test in the Mother City since 1997 – before the British and Irish tourists return to Gauteng for the final Test on Saturday, 7 August at Emirates Airline Park, the storied venue of the 1995 Rugby World Cup final.

The Lions have toured South Africa on 13 previous occasions, with the first Tour taking place in 1891. In that time, the Lions have won four-Test series, lost eight with one drawn. Their overall record against the Springboks is played 46, won 17, lost 23, and drawn six.

As part of the agreement, Castle Lager will receive a comprehensive range of in-stadia rights, including ticketing, hospitality, and pouring, as well as kit-branding rights, and access to Springbok and Lions players and coaches. The deal also brings a newly created, Castle Lager-branded tour series logo for use across a wide range of broadcasting, merchandising, digital, and social media platforms.

Castle Lager Lions Series logo explained:

  • The four elements at the top of the symbol represent the four home unions that make up the British & Irish Lions, set above a single element to represent South Africa.
  • The two elements resolve into a single symbol – a dynamic perspective of a rugby ball.
  • The combined colors from the flag of South Africa and Lion’s red flow through the elements as a symbol of unity Negative space between the four top elements form an abstract shape of a person wrapping their arms around the symbol, representing friendship and community.

Warren Gatland says it would be difficult for Howley to join the British Lions coaching staff

British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland said it would be a little difficult to have Rob Howley on his coaching staff due to questions his former assistant might face following a ban for violating betting rules.

Howley was suspended for 18 months, with a nine-month suspension and the sanction dropped back to September 16, the day he was sent home from the Wales Rugby World Cup campaign in Japan last year. Since then, he has been appointed assistant coach of Canada. Former Wales coach Gatland, who worked with Howley on the Lions’ previous two tours, is gearing up for his tour of world champions South Africa next year.

“The last thing you want is for people to bring up the past and deviate from what their preparation and focus is for a Lions tour,” Gatland told reporters when asked if Howley would be in the running for a Market Stall.

“That makes it a bit difficult because it’s the last thing me and someone like Rob would want to happen. Gatland said, however, that he was “delighted” with Howley in naming him to Canada. He is an outstanding coach, he understands the mistakes he has made and I hope he does really well.”
