Boston will be the home team for both of MLB's first games in Europe on June 29 and 30, 2019.

Beginning Tuesday night in the Bronx, the Red Sox and Yankees play their second series of the season.

They will be MLB's first-ever regular season games in Europe.

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

Britain will now join other global venues to have hosted regular-season games, along with Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico and Australia. The parties have agreed to a two-year deal that will include another series in London in 2020, with participating teams to be announced, and other initiatives that will aim to establish a footprint in the city.

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

London Mayor Sadiq Khan hailed the "historic agreement". "This is our most significant endeavor ever in Europe and we look forward to showcasing Major League Baseball in one of the world's great cities".

The announcement of MLB's arrival in London comes in the wake of discussions between Rob Manfred, the sport's commissioner, and the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and follows the successful introduction of other U.S. sports into the capital. Three more National Football League games are scheduled for this year, including one at Tottenham's new stadium.

Mr Khan has said he wants to make London the sporting capital of the world. "I can't wait to hear someone shout "play ball" at London Stadium".
