As part of a long-term strategic partnership with the city, Major League Baseball will play regular-season games in London in 2023, 2024, and 2026.
MLB and London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced on Monday that the league has agreed to stage “major events” in the UK city over the next five years.
“I want to continue attracting world-class sport to our city as part of my mission to make London the sporting capital of the world,” Khan said in a statement. “These games will be a fantastic opportunity to once again showcase the London Stadium as a multi-use venue and a fantastic asset for the capital.”
In June 2019, MLB had their first game in London. The league earlier announced that it would begin a global Home Run Derby in July, with stops in London, Seoul, and Mexico City.
“All aspects of the inaugural MLB games in London were an overwhelming success,” said Commissioner Rob Manfred. “We are confident in making a long-term commitment to London.”
