Red Sox, Yankees To Face Off In London In 2019

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez delivers during the first inning against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park in Boston Friday

Major League Baseball announced Tuesday that the Yankees and Red Sox will play two regular-season games at the London Stadium, which played host to the athletics and opening and closing ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympics, on June 29 and 30, 2019.

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.

London Stadium, the site of the 2012 Olympic Games, which will take on a baseball configuration for the event.

The NFL have been playing regular-season games in London since 2007, and could eventually host a franchise if the proposed purchase of Wembley Stadium by Shahid Khan, the owner of Jacksonville Jaguars, goes ahead. Three more National Football League games are scheduled for this year, including one at Tottenham's new stadium. "This is our most significant endeavour ever in Europe and we look forward to showcasing Major League Baseball in one of the world's great cities".


The arrival of the game in London follows talks with Sadiq Khan when he became mayor in 2016.

Regardless of the success of the MLB's foray to London, two more matches have already been slated for 2020 - potentially involving different teams - as Manfred continues his push to expand baseball's footprint beyond the confines of the US. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium".

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

His enthusiasm to bring big-time baseball to the capital even saw him two years ago throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a game between the New York Mets and Minnesota Twins.
