Get ready for Major League Baseball at London Stadium in June of 2019.

According to the BBC, the Yanks and Red Sox will clash at London Stadium on June 29 and 30 next year.

The 2019 matches are set for June 29-30, with the Red Sox designated as the home team, in what will be the first regular-season Major League Baseball fixtures staged in Europe.

Manfred said: "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.

"They are excited about the chance to meet new fans and showcase the game they love", he said.

Mr Khan has said he wants to make London the sporting capital of the world. This series will surely be the most significant worldwide event to date for Major League ball.

Red Sox principal owner John Henry, who also owns Liverpool FC of the Premier League, said that Boston and NY have been talking about playing overseas for some time. "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".

"We expect an exciting and intense pair of games and appreciate the significance of representing our sport in such a meaningful way". Located in the eastern part of the capital, the stadium is now home of Premier League club West Ham United and was also used during the 2015 Rugby World Cup and the 2017 Athletics World Championships. Three more are scheduled for this year.
