This is the Yankees’ chance to blow past the Red Sox

The MLB is the third major USA league to cross the Atlantic, with the National Basketball Association and NFL having already established themselves in London.

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

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

London Stadium holds 55,000 people and is the home for West Ham United Football Club.

Though World Cup officials had been keen to make the logistics work in their bid to host matches at the London Stadium, the notion was eventually ruled out due to the awkward configuration required to fit the pitch into the venue without the setting sun impeding on play.

The Red Sox will be the home team for both games, marking the first time the clubs have met in a city that is not Boston or NY.

"We are bringing you one of the best rivalries in baseball", MLS Commissioner Rob Manfred said on Tuesday (Wednesday NZ Time).

"Really pleased that we've secured MLB games in London for 2019 & 2020 - the first city to host a Major League Baseball game in Europe", London's mayor Sadiq Khan said in a tweet. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium", he added.

"To have the opportunity to participate in this historic baseball endeavor and showcase our game in London is something our entire organization is thrilled to be a part of", said New York Yankees Managing General Partner Hal Steinbrenner.

The Boston Red Sox World Series win in 2004 ended an 86-year title drought, burying the "Curse of the Bambino", the supposed hoodoo stemming from the Red Sox trading beloved star Babe Ruth to the Yankees.

Talks were held in 2016 to stage regular-season matches in London but the plans were later abandoned.

"London Stadium has a track record of successfully delivering major global events, moving from Premier League Football and both worldwide and domestic showpiece rugby fixtures to hosting some of the biggest names in music".
