NEW YORK (AP and Heart of Illinois ABC) — Major League Baseball plans to return to London next year for the first time since 2019.

The league says the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs will play a two-game series on June 24 and 25, 2023, at London Stadium, which was the city’s main venue for the 2012 Olympic Games.

The Cubs and Cards were supposed to play in London in 2020, but the games were canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

MLB last played in London in 2019, when the New York Yankees swept a two-game set against the Boston Red Sox in June at London Stadium. Those were also MLB’s first regular-season games played in Europe.
