Sox Vs Yanks In London 2019

In April, two games between the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins took place San Juan in Puerto Rico, while the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres played a three-games series in Monterrey, Mexico earlier this month.

One of the fiercest rivalries in sport - the New York Yankees versus the Boston Red Sox - is on the move and heading to London as Major League Baseball flies across the Atlantic to broaden its global reach.

Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge puts Red Sox relief pitcher Joe Kelly in a headlock after Kelly hit Yankees' Tyler Austin with a pitch. Two of the most recognizable teams are once again two of the best.

Boston will be the home team for the games, which have been scheduled for June 29 and 30 and will feature a capacity of 55,000 at the home of Premier League football club West Ham.

Major League Baseball also confirmed it is committed to playing in London in 2020 as it tries to "establish a long-term footprint in the city".

Major League Baseball matches have already been staged outside the United States of America in Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and, most recently, at Australia's Sydney Cricket Ground in March 2014. "They are aware they'll be a part of history, but they also know these games count".

"I am absolutely delighted that we have secured this historic agreement for Major League Baseball to come to London in 2019 and 2020", said London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Khan said: "London is the sporting capital of the world".

It will be the first time a Sox-Yankees game will be played somewhere other than Boston or NY.

Hal Steinbrenner, Yankees' managing general partner, said: "Bringing these storied teams together for British fans - who have such a profound appreciation for sports at the highest level - only adds to the unique allure of one of the world's greatest sporting rivalries".

The series next year will not be a one-and-done, either.

The British capital hosted its first regular-season National Basketball Association game in 2011.

Major League Baseball had planned to host regular-season matches in London in 2017, but these were abandoned due to time constraints.
