  • Gleyber Torres not fazed by joining Yankees Red Sox rivalry

Major League Baseball announced Tuesday that the Yankees and Red Sox will play two regular-season games at the London Stadium, which played host to the athletics and opening and closing ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympics, on June 29 and 30, 2019. "It's also the first time the Red Sox and Yankees have played one another outside of NY or Boston". Three more National Football League games are scheduled for this year, including one at Tottenham Hotspur's new north London soccer stadium.

The center-field fence will be an inviting target, just 385 feet from home plate under the preliminary configuration of stadium, which will accommodate 55,000 spectators.

Major League Baseball will make its first foray into Europe next season with the biggest possible splash: by showcasing the sport's heavyweights. MLB, which has previously staged regular-season contests in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Japan and Australia, will return to London for another series in 2020, with the participating teams yet to.

"All the hard work has paid off", said Khan, describing it as an "historic" partnership. "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".

"As a venue, we are immensely proud to be hosting MLB's London Series at London Stadium in 2019", said Graham Gilmore, CEO of London Stadium 185.
