Sox Vs Yanks In London 2019

Sox Vs Yanks In London 2019

Major League Baseball had planned to host regular-season matches in London in 2017, but these were abandoned due to time constraints.

The matches will be held on 29 and 30 June and will be the first Major League Baseball (MLB) games to be staged in Europe.

The London Stadium will have a 55,000 capacity for the games but Henry believes Londoners will struggle to secure tickets.

But it will not be the first time regular-season Major League Baseball matches will have been played outside the USA, with ties already having been staged in Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia.

"Some of the most talented and dynamic players in the world will be playing in these games", he said at a news conference in London.

Niantic promises a 1.8-mile course in the park that will include physical installations as well as exclusive activities. Niantic ended up apologizing and offering refunds on tickets and $100 in in-game credits to everyone who attended.

Regardless of the success of the MLB's foray to London, two more matches have already been slated for 2020 - potentially involving different teams - as Manfred continues his push to expand baseball's footprint beyond the confines of the US.

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. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome. "This is a major coup demonstrating, once again, that London is the sporting capital of the world and I am excited about a new partnership with MLB and the long term future of this sport in our great city". We could not be happier that Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. has been able to make this a reality.

"I've never been to London, so I'm looking forward to that", Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "We expect an exciting and intense pair of games and appreciate the significance of representing our sport in such a meaningful way". "That fact, coupled with the nature of the rivalry and our desire to make the most out of the London series, made this the flawless choice for the London outing".

Each Yankee and Red Sox player will receive an additional GBP 44,000 (USD 60,000) to play in London.
