Rugby Australia and The British & Irish Lions have today revealed the full fixture list for one of the largest and most prestigious Rugby events in the world, the 2025 Lions Tour.

The British & Irish Lions combine the best players from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, touring either Australia, New Zealand or South Africa every four years – meaning the Lions only visit Australia every 12 years.

The Tour will see the Lions play nine matches in Australia, with three Tests against the Wallabies, and six Tour games around the country – including a match against an invitational team of players from Australia and New Zealand at Adelaide Oval.

Adelaide Oval will host the final Tour game before the first Test, a marquee match-up between the Lions and an invitational Australia-New Zealand combined team on 12 July in what shapes up to be something of a “fourth Test” on the Tour.

“The British & Irish Lions Tour is one of the great sporting festivals – it is a real landmark of Australian and world sport.” – Rugby Australia CEO, Phil Waugh.
