Phillies and Mets to play in London in 2024
The Phillies and Mets will take their rivalry across the Atlantic next season, playing a two-game series in London on June 8-9, 2024. 
The contests mark the first time in franchise history the Phillies will play a regular season game outside of North America. 
“Major League Baseball has done an excellent job of expanding its footprint internationally, and we are honored to play a role in that effort as part of the 2024 London Series,” said Phillies Managing Partner and CEO John Middleton. “This will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase our players’ talents and highlight the excitement that comes with a Phillies-Mets matchup for our fans in the [United Kingdom] and those who have never attended a baseball game.” 
The 2024 London Series is part of the MLB WORLD TOUR, a historic slate of games that will bring MLB teams and players to fans around the globe. The MLB WORLD TOUR represents MLB and the MLBPA’s largest-ever international play plan featuring up to 24 regular season games and up to 16 exhibition games played in Asia, Mexico, Latin America, and Europe through the 2026 season.
The 2024 London Series will mark the fourth international trip for the Mets. The club has previously played games in Mexico, Japan, and Puerto Rico. 
The Phillies-Mets series will mark the third series of games in London. The Red Sox and Yankees played in the inaugural series in 2019, and the Cardinals and Cubs will play a series there this weekend.
