Yankees-Red Sox Rivalry Could Follow NFL to London

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox could be close to a deal for a series over in London, according to new Major League Baseball rumors.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has advocated the use of the stadium for baseball in a bid to increase the usage of the stadium amid spiralling financial losses - a commission initiated by Khan predicts that the London Stadium will make a loss of £20m this year and £140m in total by 2022.

Given the timing of the series, it will have little impact if any on the London Stadium's permanent tenants West Ham United, as the games would take place during English football's off-season.

MLB matches have previously been played in Mexico and Japan, nations that have a baseball culture, but the London series would reach a new audience. As for the host venue, these games would be at London Olympic Stadium, the main stadium used for the 2012 Olympics.

It would be the first Major League Baseball game held in Europe.

Yankees' manager Aaron Boone is all for the opportunity to show off his club to England's royal family, as he told the NY Times.

"It's a shorter trip than to California, right?"

A London series between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees is reportedly closer to being finalized, with a 2019 regular-season series in the works.

"Anytime you can grow our game, I think that's a pretty cool thing", Boone said. The Red Sox's last time overseas was also in Japan's capital four years later against the Oakland Athletics.

According to Sherman's report, details about the arrangement still need to be ironed out, such as finding a promoter, signing a deal with the London Stadium and getting the Yankees and Red Sox to agree to lose one home game a piece officially.

The Red Sox played an exhibition series in Montreal prior to the 2017 season, but haven't been overseas for a series since playing the Athletics in Tokyo in 2008.

The franchises have connections to the Premier League as well, with the Yankees in a partnership with Manchester City, while Red Sox owner John Henry also owns Liverpool.
