The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will face each other in two regular-season games at London Stadium next year.

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

Boston will be the home team on June 29 and 30, 2019, for MLB's first games in Europe. The stadium will have a capacity of 55,000 in a baseball configuration.

MLB said it is also "committed to playing in London in 2020 and our intention is to establish a long-term footprint in the city" as American pro sports leagues continue to attempt to expand their reach to British fans.
