Major League Baseball said it was also "committed to playing in London in 2020 and our intention is to establish a long-term footprint in the city".

The league has, however, played games in Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia.

"I am absolutely delighted that we have secured this historic agreement for Major League Baseball to come to London in 2019 and 2020", said Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London.

It will be the first time a Sox-Yankees game will be played somewhere other than Boston or NY. They are excited about the chance to meet new fans, and showcase the game they love.

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.

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.

"We hope this series will be the beginning of a relationship with London that persists and a continuation of increasing exposure for Major League Baseball in Europe". There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.

Khan said: "London is the sporting capital of the world".

Each Yankee and Red Sox player will receive an additional GBP 44,000 (USD 60,000) to play in London. The venue will host Major League Baseball games in 2019 and 2020. 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.

"I'm committed - as is MLB - to ensure baseball has a long-term future over many years in London".
