Red Sox and Yankees to clash in London

It's odd that the Red Sox would give up a two home games - especially matchups against the Yankees - but having one of the league's marquee rivalries should help fill the 55,000 seats at Olympic Stadium in London.

The teams were selected as the two participants in the first ever London Series, which will take place on June 29 and 30 of next year. They will be MLB's first-ever regular season games in Europe. "We are bringing you one of the best rivalries in baseball".

Major League Baseball has expanded its reach in recent years, hosting games in Japan, Australia, Puerto Rico and most recently in Mexico this past weekend, where the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres played a three-game series at Estadio de Beisbol in Monterrey. The Yankees opened the 2004 season with a two-game series against the Rays and the Red Sox opened the 2008 season with two games against the Oakland Athletics.

Mr Khan has said he wants to make London the sporting capital of the world. "It's also the first time the Red Sox and Yankees have played one another outside of NY or Boston". This series will surely be the most significant global event to date for Major League ball.
