Re buying tickets:

I've been on the last two lions tours and also tothe last 4 world cups,.I've found that tickets are less of a problem normally in the southern hemisphere as people there are less inclined to buy tickets above face value. However there will be 30 odd thousand british supporters going on the tour and the grounds are pretty small.

I'm going myself and I reckon that you'll be able to buy tickets for the provincial games pretty easily but for the tests you'll have have to pay upto 300 euros a ticket. You should be able to pick up test tickets for around 150 euros on ebay when you are in NZ.

One last word of caution,before you book your flights etc, try and sort out your accommodation. All the hotels for the test weekends are fully booked up at the mo.

Hope this all helps,

Kind of funny asking in a Cote d'Azur forum about tickets for British/Irish Lions tour of New Zealand in 2005!  Still - you takes your chances I guess.

I've got guaranteed tickets for all 7 regional games plus the 3 test matches - I've had offers in the region of of NZ$5,000 for the lot.  Are you interested in making a better offer?

Seriously - for that sort of money you'd be better off booking a tour - I understand there are still a few places available on the fully comprehensive itineraries.
