SA Rugby on Friday confirmed that tickets bought for the Lions Series through the authorised ticketing platform (tickets.lionstour2021.co.za) would be eligible for a full refund.

The assurance was given following the announcement of a revised schedule to minimise the risks of disruption that could be caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ticket holders who made their purchases as part of the travel packages from SA Rugby Travel or Lions Rugby Travel will receive an email from their respective agent explaining their options.

Purchasers of hospitality packages will be contacted by email in respect of their refunds.

Refunds to ticket holders will be made automatically. Ticket holders will have first right to buy tickets for the revised schedule if the South African Government announces the lifting of restrictions in sufficient time to deliver the necessary safety protocols.
