Yankees, Red Sox to play twice in London in 2019

Yankees, Red Sox to play twice in London in 2019

It's odd that the Red Sox would give up a two home games - especially matchups against the Yankees - but having one of the league's marquee rivalries should help fill the 55,000 seats at Olympic Stadium in London.

When the Yankees and the Boston Red Sox visit London for a two-game series next June, the travel may be a hassle, and beans and toast for breakfast may prove to be an acquired taste.

The Red Sox will be the home team for the two-game series, the first Major League Baseball games to be played in Europe.

Manfred said: "We are bringing you one of the best rivalries in baseball".

It's Officially The Hottest May Bank Holiday Weekend On Record
He said temperatures will generally be above normal, but this will depend on whether it is a sunny day or a sunny wetter day. The hottest bikini babes strip off as the record breaking May weather continues throughout the bank holiday weekend.

The NFL has played 18 games at Wembley and three at Twickenham.

"They are excited about the chance to meet new fans, and showcase the game they love". "It's also the first time the Red Sox and Yankees have played one another outside of NY or Boston". We could not be happier that Commissioner Manfred has been able to make this a reality. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium", he added.

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, launched the London Series alongside Red Sox owner John W Henry, to co-owbner of Liverpool Football Club, and Yankees chief Hal Steinbrenner in London on Tuesday.

Now, Boston and NY will take their historic rivalry to the iconic Olympic Stadium (now known as London Stadium), which hosted the 2012 Summer Olympics and also is the home to the soccer club West Ham of the Premier League. "We look forward to welcoming Major League Baseball, teams and fans to London Stadium for the first year of what we hope to be a fruitful, long term partnership".
