Here are the details of the Yankees-Red Sox games in London

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

It will be the first time a Sox-Yankees game will be played somewhere other than Boston or NY.

What is more, the two fixtures will clash with a pair of marquee World Cup matches - the 2015 finalists, Australia and New Zealand, are due to face one another in a day-night contest at Lord's on June 29, before England and India meet at Edgbaston the following day.

The NFL have been playing regular-season games in London since 2007, and could eventually host a franchise if the proposed purchase of Wembley Stadium by Shahid Khan, the owner of Jacksonville Jaguars, goes ahead. "We look forward to welcoming Major League Baseball, teams and fans to London Stadium for the first year of what we hope to be a fruitful, long term partnership".

"I am absolutely delighted that we have secured this historic agreement for Major League Baseball to come to London in 2019 and 2020".

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

Major League Baseball also announced that the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners will open next season at the Tokyo Dome on 20-21 March. "So we understand there will be a lot of excitement around it", said Yankees manager Aaron Boone on Sunday.

The stadium, which hosted the 2012 Olympics and is now home to West Ham, will be reconfigured for baseball, with 55,000 seats in place for the series.

Steinbrenner added: "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". This series will surely be the most significant global event to date for Major League ball.

"Look, Red Sox-Yankees is always big, and obviously they're a great team".

The Yankees host the Red Sox this week in a three-game series.
