London Stadium will be the first venue in Europe to host Major League Baseball (MLB), when the New York Yankees and the Boston Reds Sox meet at the venue in June 2019.
The much-anticipated fixture, forming MLB’s London Series 2019, will see the sport played in the UK for the first time over the weekend of June 28-29. MLB has played regular season games in Mexico, Japan, Australia and Puerto Rico, but have never ventured to Europe – this will be the first time that the Yankees and Red Sox rivalry has been contested outside of the USA.
Graham Gilmore, CEO of London Stadium 185, commented: “As a venue, we are immensely proud to be hosting the MLB’s international series at London Stadium in 2019. The event will see London Stadium further its aims to become the most widely used stadium in Europe, having hosted Premier League football, world athletics, international and domestic rugby union and league, Race of Champions in 2015 and inviting some of the world’s biggest musical names to perform in concert at the venue each summer.
