MLB reveals 2020 London Series will be Cubs vs. Cardinals

It was strongly suggested last week when a preliminary 2020 schedule was released to teams but today Major League Baseball made it official: the Cardinals and Cubs will play in the 2020 London Series on June 13-14. Based on the schedule, the Cardinals would appear to be the “home” team, though I suppose MLB could change that before the schedule is officially released.

Like this year’s matchup between the Yankees and the Red Sox it will be a two-game series in London Stadium. The 2020 games are a fulfillment of the two-year agreement MLB signed with the City of London in 2018 so whether there is a 2021 event would seem to depend on how this year and next go.
