We are delighted to announce that we are the official creator platform for The British & Irish Lions Tour to South Africa. This exciting partnership would allow rugby fans to keep up with the tour highlights, cheer for their favourites and catch up with all the fun and action from both rugby teams, directly from the platform.

As we head into the last few weeks of the British & Irish Lions South African Tour, we encourage Mzansi to dial up the gees and show support for the Springboks in the last two games of the tournament. Since fans are not able to come together in person just yet, this means we have to find creative ways to show support to the Bokke and at TikTok we have you covered. To join the action, all rugby fans need to do is hop onto the platform and throw their support behind the Bokke using #StrongerTogether. Go Bokke!

As part of the partnership, we are hosting a series of LIVEs on the platform with the British & Irish Lions to take fans behind the scenes and bring everyone closer to the action. We will also be giving fans the inside look at life on tour - from pre and post-match takeovers, interviews with the players and an exclusive look at the team's training sessions. 

One of these exciting LIVEs takes place on Wednesday, 4 August, at 11h00 SA time where fans can expect a ‘Hosted Team Environment Tour’ with Bobby Stridgeon and players, where you’ll be taken around the team's recovery pools, outside space, nutrition table and games room. Be sure to stay tuned!

That is not all! Every Saturday the Bokke will share exclusive behind-the-scenes content giving fans a look at what happens off the field.

Want to be part of the gees? There are various fun hashtag challenges available in-app that you can get involved in.

To ensure you don’t miss any of the action, follow the official TikTok accounts for the Springboks [@springboks.rugby] and The British & Irish Lions [@lionsofficial]. But for now, check out some past action right here:
