Major League Baseball games most probably in London in June 2019.

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are "very close" to agreeing on a deal to play two Major League Baseball regular season games in London in June 2019. The venue would be London Stadium, which is home to Premier League football club: 'West Ham United'. Details are still to be agreed, but if the fixtures take place, they would be the first Major League Baseball Games hosted in Europe.

Proposals to host the 2019 Cricket World Cup Matches at London Stadium at the same time, have not been affected. The Cricket World Cup runs from 30th May to 14th July, but it is understood both sports could be accommodated in the short space of time.
