Haere Mai, welcome to the Rugby 2017 Festival

Official festival programme of the DHL New Zealand Lions Series 2017

The Rugby 2017 Festival follows the matches around New Zealand. Follow the festival from host city to host city. It’s the best way to meet the people, see the sights and taste the flavours of our place.

On the field, the rivalry and traditions will play out. But between matches the Lions Tour NZ 2017 Rugby Festival lets you seek out the best of New Zealand and get close to what makes this country so special.

We’ll be adding more great stuff to the programme right up until kick-off so keep checking or download the app to stay up with the play.

Let's get started!
