MLB to host a London Series in 2019

Major League Baseball (MLB) will be commencing their London Series in June with a match between the World Series champions, the Boston Red Sox and one of their biggest rivals, the New York Yankees.

While BT Sport are likely to renew their existing deal with MLB, the BBC may also broadcast the game, as they are close to securing the broadcasting rights to the matches. The communications for the London Series will be provided by Mitel.

With the start of the London Series, it’s possible that MLB will begin to acquire fan bases similar to that of the NFL, which holds annual games in London that are broadcast by both the BBC and Sky Sports.

Richard Roberts, Mitel Vice President for the UK and Ireland, said: “Anything that connects the fans should be encouraged. As soon as we knew the intent of the MLB to come to the UK, to Europe, we had to be part of it.”

The London Series will begin on 29th June, 2019 at London Stadium.
