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.

In fact, get ready for Red Sox vs Yankees baseball at London Stadium in June of 2019.

The 2019 series will be played on June 29 and June 30 at the London Stadium, the site of the 2012 Olympic Games, which will be configured for baseball, with an estimated capacity of 55,000. "We are bringing you one of the best rivalries in baseball".

Major League Baseball has expanded its reach in recent years, hosting games in Japan, Australia, Puerto Rico and most recently in Mexico this past weekend, where the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres played a three-game series at Estadio de Beisbol in Monterrey.

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 is excited to be bringing one of the most storied rivalries in sports to the passionate fans of London", said MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan hailed the "historic agreement".

A test of the appetite for the London venture is that the two fixtures will clash with key World Cup cricket matches, with Australia and New Zealand playing a day-nighter at Lord's, also in London, on June 29, before England meet India at Edgbaston in Birmingham the following day.

Mr Khan has said he wants to make London the sporting capital of the world.

"With the success of National Football League and NBA here, London is now the major hub for American sport outside the U.S.".
