Unfortunately, fans are not able to come together in person this year, which means the Boks are without their passionate supporters behind them at Cape Town Stadium.

Do not worry, TikTok has its community covered. To join the action, all rugby fans need to do is hop onto the platform and throw their support behind the team using #StrongerTogether.

It’s with this in mind that TikTok is delighted to announce it is the official creator platform for the Lions’ 2021 tour to South Africa, and that rugby supporters can catch up with all the action from both teams directly from the platform.

As part of the partnership, TikTok is hosting a series of LIVEs with the British & Irish Lions to take fans behind the scenes and bring everyone closer to the action. TikTok 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.

Every Saturday the Boks will be sharing exclusive behind-the-scenes content to give you a look into what happens off the field.

Want to be part of the gees? There are various fun hashtag challenges available in-app that users 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].
