West Ham are involved in a £100 million ($141 million/€114 million) High Court legal row with the London Legacy Development Corporation over capacity at the stadium, where the club are tenants, and over other aspects such as who pays match-day costs for food, drink, television and hospitality.

It will be the first time a Sox-Yankees game will be played somewhere other than Boston or NY.

The NFL has played regular-season games in London since 2007, holding 18 games at Wembley and three at Twickenham.

Major League Baseball is heading to London.

"The stadium infrastructure in this city gives Major League Baseball every opportunity to put on a first-class event".

I do think that we should revisit the tax legislation in the way that we always have, in a bipartisan, transparent way", Mrs. She called on the House Ethics Committee to investigate and said the congressman "will fully cooperate".

Manfred said: "We are bringing you one of the best rivalries in baseball". The Oakland A's and Seattle Mariners will also open the 2019 season at the Tokyo Dome in March. There were significant challenges that had to be overcome.

Red Sox owner John W. Henry said his team and the Yankees had been discussing the possibility of playing in London for several years. We could not be happier that Commissioner Manfred has been able to make this a reality. "We expect an exciting and intense pair of games and appreciate the significance of representing our sport in such a meaningful way". "This is a major coup demonstrating, once again, that London is the sporting capital of the world and I am excited about a new partnership with MLB and the long term future of this sport in our great city". "That fact, coupled with the nature of the rivalry and our desire to make the most out of the London series, made this the ideal choice for the London outing".

Major League Baseball officials, along with Red Sox and Yankees brass held a joint press conference this morning to make the big announcement.

"They've been fighting it out for over a hundred years", Henry said about the Red Sox and the Yankees.
