MLB Announces Return To London

Major League Baseball (MLB) has announced its return to London with a two-game series, where the Chicago Cubs will play the St. Louis Cardinals.

The partnership between the city of London and MLB, which was announced in May, will see the capital host a series of international games at London stadiums from 24th to 25th June.

The MLB has also been planning an international world tour, which includes 16 exhibition games played in Asia, Mexico, Latin America, and Europe until 2026.

Commenting on the partnership, St Louis Cardinals chairman and chief executive, William DeWitt Jr, said: “The Cardinals-Cubs rivalry is one of the best in sports, and it will be exciting to bring it to Europe for a new audience to experience.”

“I have no doubt that the passionate sports fans in London will love these games and we look forward to creating some new Cardinals fans overseas,” said he said.

Chicago Cubs executive chairman, Tom Ricketts, added: “The MLB London Series between the Cubs and Cardinals has been in the works for years now and we’re thrilled to finally be able to bring one of baseball’s biggest rivalries to fans abroad in 2023.

“We hope that this series not only excites and entertains but brings more international sports fans to the game we all love,” Ricketts said.

Additionally, CSM Sport and Entertainment, who organised the 2019 event, will also manage the 2022 event’s marketing, ticket strategy, venue operations, and the fan experience of the games.

Tickets are now available for the fourth annual Women In Sport Summit, which will provide real stories, skills and career moves, from administrators to athletes, and will give a platform for honest conversations and exclusive networking opportunities, with game-changing discussions about the growth, value and the future of women in sport.
