British & Irish Lions Re-Appoint Sky Sports

The British & Irish Lions have re-appointed Sky Sports as its broadcast partner for the upcoming 2025 Tour of Australia.

One of the most eagerly anticipated events in the sporting calendar will be shown exclusively live on Sky Sports and NOW in the UK and Ireland as The British & Irish Lions travel to Australia to face the Wallabies.

The Lions tasted Series success the last time they were on Australian soil, with a dramatic 2-1 Series win following a memorable performance in the decisive final Test.

Having been defeated in a Covid-impacted Tour of South Africa back in 2021, the Lions will be aiming to make it a second successive Series win in Australia as they kick off the first Test in Brisbane at the Suncorp Stadium, aptly nicknamed 'The Cauldron'.

Ben Calveley, CEO of The British & Irish Lions, said: "We are delighted to be partnering once again with Sky Sports as our UK & Ireland live broadcast partner for the 2025 Tour.

"Sky Sports have been an outstanding broadcast partner to The British & Irish Lions for many years. The quality of production, presenters, expert panellists, and overall analysis they deliver really enriches the Series and makes for a compelling offering for fans watching at home.

"Preparations are really starting to ramp up for 2025 and we are hugely excited for the Tour. Sky Sports will play a key role in helping to further build levels of excitement and anticipation amongst fans and we look forward to working closely with them over the coming period."

Phil Waugh, Rugby Australia CEO, said: "Rugby Australia is excited to be welcoming The British & Irish Lions back to Australia for the first time in 12 years. This iconic Tour and the chance to renew the rivalry between the Wallabies and the Lions promises to be a special occasion for everyone."
