British and Irish Lions COO McEwen steps down

The British and Irish Lions rugby union team has today (Friday) announced that Charlie McEwen has stepped down from his role as chief operating officer.

McEwen has spent nine years with the Lions, overseeing the commercial, digital and communications teams.

McEwen also oversaw the strategic brand review for the Lions in 2014 and led the introduction of the 1888 Club, which honours all players who have turned out for the team over the years.

McEwen said it had been “an honour and a privilege” to work for the Lions but felt it was the right time to step down.

On their most recent tour in 2017, the Lions drew 1-1 in a Test series against New Zealand. The team will tour South Africa in 2021.
