Dates, Times And Channels – Everything You Need To Know To Watch All The Lions Matches This Summer

The British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand is upon us and we can finally look ahead to, hopefully, ten glory filled matches for the tourists.

Much has been made of the squad selection and gruelling schedule that awaits Warren Gatland’s men but now, with only three days to go before the opening clash with the New Zealand Provincial Barbarians, all eyes look on in anticipation.

In addition to the Provincial Barbarians, the Lions will be pitted against the New Zealand Maori and Super Rugby franchises Blues, Crusaders, Highlanders and Chiefs, all before the first Test against the All Blacks.

With the Chiefs sandwiched between the first and second Tests, it is fair to say the looming tour is one of the toughest in recent memory.

While the locals will be fully immersing themselves in the unique atmosphere a Lions tour brings, back home, all of 12 times zones away, fans will need to know when and where they can catch the action.

Simply put, keep your mornings free every three days for the next five weeks and set your calendars to the schedule below.
