While baseball is America’s pastime, it’s truly a global game, which will be evident during the MLB London Series in 2023.

In 2019, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox put on quite a show during a two-game series in London. The two teams combined for 50 runs over two games, so the bar is set high for MLB’s return to London later this year.

MLB London Series 2023 FAQs

The MLB London Series in 2023 will mark just the third and fourth MLB games ever played in Europe. It’s undoubtedly going to be a big deal for the growing number of baseball fans in the U.K. and throughout Europe.

That’s why we wanted to share everything fans need to know about the MLB London Series in 2023.

Who’s playing in the London Series in 2023?

For starters, it’s important to mention that the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals will be playing the two games in the MLB London Series this year.


While it’s not the same as the Yankees and Red Sox, the Cardinals and Cubs are bitter rivals with a history that dates back to 1892. Officially, both London games will be home games for the Cardinals.

For fans who haven’t been keeping up with baseball, the Cardinals are the reigning NL Central champions and have been to the MLB playoffs in four consecutive seasons. As for the Cubs, they’ve been absent from the playoffs in three of the last four seasons.

However, they have worked hard to rebuild their roster this offseason, signing pitcher Jameson Taillon, shortstop Dansby Swanson, and former MVP Cody Bellinger. Those changes should make the Cubs a bonafide contender in the NL Central, giving a lot of importance to these head-to-head games with the Cardinals.

When is the MLB London Series?

The Cubs and Cardinals will play two games in London this summer.

The first game is on Saturday, June, 24, and will start at 6:10 p.m. local time in the U.K. The second game will be the following day, Sunday, June 25, and will start at 3:10 p.m. local time.


Where is the MLB London Series Played?

Just like in 2019, the two games of the MLB London Series will be played at London Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. As the name implies, the stadium was built in anticipation of London hosting the 2012 Olympics and is now used as the full-time home of Premier League club West Ham United.

However, Olympic Stadium is still used for a variety of purposes, including hosting games in the MLB London series.

Is the stadium built for Baseball?

Needless to say, Olympic Stadium wasn’t specifically designed for baseball. However, the stadium is large enough to fit a baseball stadium and still has a capacity of roughly 66,000 fans.

Equally important, the dimensions of the MLB London Series stadium are 330 feet from home plate to each foul pole and 385 feet to straight away center field. As mentioned, during the 2019 MLB London Series, those dimensions turned out to be quite favorable to hitters, as the Yankees and Red Sox combined for 50 runs in just two games. 

How much are tickets to the MLB London Series?

After more than 59,000 fans showed up for each of the Yankees-Red Sox games in 2019, there should be big crowds for the Cubs and Cardinals at London Stadium this year.

For fans who want to know where to buy tickets for the MLB London series, Ticketmaster UK still has seats available in almost every section of the stadium. Depending on where in the stadium those seats are located, MLB London Series ticket prices in 2023 range from £54 to £385.

That means there’s a wide range of tickets available for baseball fans in the UK and Europe regardless of their budget.
