The Golden Lions of Johannesburg have confirmed that they will tour North America in April, and tickets for their match against a North American Invitational XV are on sale.

The game will be held April 13 at Cal State Fullerton's Titan Stadium, which has a seating capacity of 10,000.

Tickets can be purchased here.

There are no official details on who will be on the North American team, but it's expected that some fairly well-known names from overseas will be asked to participate. At least one-third of the lineup is expected to be USA players, and all but maybe one or two of that squad will be capped.

Meanwhile the Lions have already named their touring squad.
