Red Sox and Yankees to clash in London

But it will not be the first time regular-season Major League Baseball matches will have been played outside the United States, with ties already having been staged in Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia. "So fans can expect intense competition during what will surely be a great few days in London".

"Some of the most talented and dynamic players in the world will be playing in these games", said Tony Clark, Executive Director of the MLB Players Association.

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred joined Khan at the Regent Street Cinema in London to announce the series. "They are aware they'll be a part of history, but they also know these games count".

The teams were selected as the two participants in the first ever London Series, which will take place on June 29 and 30 of next year. "We are bringing you one of the best rivalries in baseball".

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "I am absolutely delighted that we have secured this historic agreement for Major League Baseball to come to London in 2019 and 2020. I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium". The Red Sox have won eight times, most recently in 2013.

It's finally official: The Red Sox and Yankees will play a pair of games in London in 2019.
