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

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.

It's finally official: The Red Sox and Yankees will play a pair of games in London in 2019.

"The stadium infrastructure in this city gives Major League Baseball every opportunity to put on a first-class event", Manfred said.

The big announcement comes as the two teams begin a three game series at Yankee Stadium tonight. There is no better way to start the London Series and the first Major League Baseball fixture in Europe than a clash between two heavyweights of global sport - the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. Major League Baseball announced on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT) that Oakland and Seattle will open next season at the Tokyo Dome on March 20-21.

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