DHL New Zealand Lions Series 2017

Sie sind hier

New Zealand will host the DHL Lions 2017 Series, giving fans and players the chance to enjoy the best of Aotearoa.

The opportunity only comes around every 12 years and so New Zealand is excited, ready and waiting to welcome visitors for the DHL New Zealand Lions Series 2017.  New Zealand - known for putting heart and soul into its national game - is a favourite destination for the 'Red Army'. 

The 10-game “feast of rugby” spans almost six weeks and with a choice of seven host cities and masses to see and do in between matches and venues – the series promises to be the trip of a lifetime.

Kicking off in Whangarei in the far north, the series takes in some of the North and South Island’s most diverse and popular tourist regions and includes three test matches against the All Blacks – one in Wellington, New Zealand’s capital, and the first and final tests both in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

Official supporter packages on sale

Official supporter packages for the series go on sale at 10am (NZST) on Monday, 3 October 2016. These packages will be available for fans in New Zealand and the rest of the world (with the exception of UK, Ireland & Europe).

Packages are available through All Blacks Tours.
