The British & Irish Lions will kick off their six-week tour to Australia with a game in Hong Kong against the famous Barbarians Club on Saturday, 1 June 2013.

 The tour marks the 125-year anniversary of The Lions’ proud touring heritage and traditions.

It has been a long time since such a game has taken place en-route to the main tour destination. “The last Lions Tour to Australia in 2001 heralded the dawn of 'The Red Army' with tens of thousands of English, Irish, Scottish & Welsh tourists and expats wearing the red jersey in support of the Lions. For 2013 we have the perfect opportunity to expand this in the developing rugby region of Asia with the inclusion of a match in Hong Kong,” said Tour manager and former Lion Andy Irvine.

Trevor Gregory, Chairman of the HKRFU added: “We are proud to be hosting this truly unique rugby occasion. It will be an honour to welcome the British & Irish Lions and the Barbarians for a fixture that continues their remarkable legacy. I have no doubt it will capture the imagination of rugby supporters in Hong Kong, the Asian region and the rest of the world.”
