Red Sox, Yankees To Face Off In London In 2019

Boston Red Sox Principal Owner John W. Henry said: "For several years the Red Sox and Yankees have discussed playing in London as the first-ever Major League Baseball regular season game in Europe".

Britain will host the first Major League Baseball games ever played in Europe, after a deal was signed to bring fierce rivals Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees to London next year.

"We hope this series will be the beginning of a relationship with London that will persist", said Manfred, explaining that an agreement was in place for baseball to also return to London for two matches in 2020 with teams yet to be announced.

Major League Baseball said it also "committed to playing in London in 2020 and our intention is to establish a long-term footprint in the city" as American sports further embrace British fans. The United Kingdom will follow other global venues that have hosted regular season Major League games, joining Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia.


Baseball is following in the footsteps of American football, which has regularly held National Football League (NFL) games in England since 2007.

The arrival of the game in London follows talks with Sadiq Khan when he became mayor in 2016. But two of the best hitting teams in baseball may find at least one thing to their liking: the dimensions of London Stadium. "All the hard work has paid off".

Mr Khan has said he wants to make London the sporting capital of the world. "It won't just be a great live experience for those who get a ticket for the London Stadium, but also I am sure that the match, the game on TV or radio or on the web will be fantastic as well".
