Major League Baseball makes its debut in London this weekend, with its MLB in Europe series coming to London Stadium.

Arena Group supplied temporary seating and an ASD temporary structure for the game between Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, taking place 29 and 30 June.

the Mitel & MLB Present London Series is part of a long-term strategy to grow Major League Baseball in Europe over the next two years.

London Stadium will be transformed into a 60,000-seater ballpark where the famous rivals will play each other for the first time ever on British soil.

The decision was made to install artificial turf instead of real grass, and much of the materials are being shipped in from across the world, with the artificial grass coming from France and the clay shipped over from Pennsylvania in the US.

Bradley Merchant, project director, Arena UK & Europe seating, commented: “It was incredibly exciting to learn we won this project.

“Being such an iconic sporting team coming to the UK we were honoured to be able to assist in the production of such an historic event. In addition to seating, we are also providing our new ASD temporary structure which is a new product to the market.”
