Born To Dare
The DHL New ZealandLions Series 2017
As an extension of its commitment with the All Blacks, Tudor is proud to be Official Sponsor of the DHL New Zealand Lions Series 2017, an international rugby Series like no other. Every four years, the best rugby players in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, combine to become the British and Irish Lions team and tour one of the Southern Hemisphere rugby nations. In 2017, they will be challenging the most successful national team in the history of professional rugby, the All Blacks. In a series of 10 matches in seven cities over five weeks, the Lions will take on a provincial Barbarians side, New Zealand’s five Super Rugby teams, the Māori All Blacks and finally the legendary All Blacks.
On June the 24th, the British and Irish Lions will meet the All Blacks in the first of their three Tests at Eden Park, Auckland’s legendary rugby stadium, and face their mighty haka. They will be 18,000 km from home, supported by their 20,000-strong army of supporters, but will not only be facing the All Blacks but also the 4.5 million residents in the rugby-worshiping nation of New Zealand.
