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

The plan is to host the London Series again in 2020, in order to establish a "long-term footprint in the city".

It has been announced the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees will play a two-game series in London next year as part of the Major League Baseball regular season.

The Red Sox will be the home team for both games, set for June 29 and June 30. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.
