What's in store for the Lions in Super Rugby in 2018?
December 1, 2016 - While the South African national rugby team aren't in the European tournament the Rugby Six Nations (yet), there is a lot of hype about this international event that you are not going to want to miss out on, despite the Lions squad not being involved. However, with due to TV demands, it is suggested that South Africa may end up joining the competition, so you may want to enjoy the tournament before the squad do in order to see the potential competition that the South African squad may face in the future. If you're thinking about heading to one of the games, or you're simply watching from home, there are a few ways that you can enjoy the Six Nations in the best way possible.
At The Game
If you are heading to the game and you really want to enjoy a unique experience at whatever stadium you are looking to visit across Europe, then corporate or hospitality packages are some of the best ways to do this. If you're heading to Cardiff, you can find Principality Stadium hospitality quite easily. The stadiums that host the Six Nations have been hosting rugby events for many years, as well as a number of other sports, and with this experience, you can be certain that you will discover a corporate experience that shouldn't be missed. You can combine the thrill of the game, with a fine dine experience, VIP treatment and much more all as part of the package. Whether you're heading to Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Dublin, Paris or Rome as part of the Six Nations tournament, you can find some of the best hospitality and corporate package to make your day even more hassle-free and enjoyable. However, if you want to get in the crowd and enjoy the stadium thrill as a regular punter, then you can do so but it is recommended that you book up your tickets far in advance if you want a good seat, as the tournament can sell out very quickly.
If you have family and friends who are passionate about rugby, then youre going to want to ensure that you have a good TV setup to watch the Six Nations. Whether you have a number of screens or surround sound, or simply a good sitting area so everybody can enjoy watching the team together then you can create your own atmosphere at home. You can even take this one step further and take on a second team that you will support throughout the Six Nations, and hope that one day South Africa will be playing in the Northern Hemisphere as part of the Six Nations tournament in the very near future, as Saracens chairman Nigel Wray believes. While the Rugby Championship is enjoyed in the country as the equivalent to the Rugby Six Nations, where South Africa play against Australia, Argentina and New Zealand, time zones are currently a bit of a problem for the team, which is why they may end up playing in the Six Nations with the European teams in the near future.
