Major League Baseball officially announces next year's Yankees-Red Sox series in London

  • Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees sign deal to play in London

The teams will play Major League Baseball's first games in England on June 29 and 30, 2019, at the stadium that was created to host the 2012 Olympics.

"They've been fighting it out for over a hundred years", Henry said about the Red Sox and the Yankees.

Major League Baseball also announced that the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners will open next season at the Tokyo Dome on 20-21 March. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, launched the London Series alongside Red Sox owner John W Henry, to co-owbner of Liverpool Football Club, and Yankees chief Hal Steinbrenner in London on Tuesday. We could not be happier that Commissioner Manfred has been able to make this a reality. Estimated capacity of London Stadium for the series will be 55,000 mostly confused British people. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium".

Major League Baseball said it wanted its two premier teams to showcase the sport in England's capital. Two games in London, next June 29th and 30th.

"A great reason to come to London and to see these two great teams play in this venue". There is no better way to start the London Series and the first Major League Baseball fixture in Europe than a clash between two heavyweights of worldwide sport - the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

"I'm committed - as is MLB - to ensure baseball has a long-term future over many years in London".

This season the Yankees have a better record than every other MLB teams except the Red Sox, which is 25-9 and top American League East.

That the Sox and Yankees were chosen is a testament to their rivalry's resurgence.
