Sky Sports to broadcast British & Irish Lions Tour of Australia in 2025

Sky Sports Lions Tour

Sky Sports will broadcast all three Tests and six warm-up matches of the British & Irish Lions Tour of Australia in 2025.

The agreement will see Sky Sports broadcast its eighth consecutive Lions Tour, with the partnership starting in 1997.

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’.

“With all its history, the Lions Tour remains one of the most iconic events in the sporting calendar and one we always look forward to at Sky Sports,” said Jonathan Licht, Sky Sports Managing Director.

“We’re committed to delivering world-class coverage of what is sure to be another fantastic Series.”
