The three UK stadiums set to host the Lions vs South Africa tests

The Lions have reportedly written to the UK government to request sanctioning a home Test series against South Africa this summer.

The Daily Mail claim the Lions board met last Thursday before making overtures to the Government over financial guarantees to secure a Lions series which could be played out in the UK.

It is thought the tour to South Africa is now a non-starter owing to a lack of vaccine programme with the Mail saying the RFU, WRU, IRFU and SRU are hugely in favour of hosting the tour on home soil.

Here is where the three tests are set to be played.

*NOTE: The ‘home tour’ could be expanded to four Tests, according to The Guardian

FIRST TEST: PRINCIPALITY STADIUM (Cardiff)

Capacity: 82,000

 Initially built to host the 1999 Rugby World Cup, it has gone on to host many other large-scale events, such as the Tsunami Relief Cardiff concert, the Super Special Stage of Wales Rally Great Britain, the Speedway Grand Prix of Great Britain and various concerts.
