The Phillies are headed across the pond next season for a series in London.

The Phils will face the Mets as part of MLB's 2024 London Series, according to Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci.

The Cubs and Cardinals play in London June 24-25, the first MLB series there since the Yankees and Red Sox faced off in 2019. The games four years ago drew crowds of nearly 60,000 per night.

It was one of four international series MLB played in 2019, pre-pandemic. Monterrey, Mexico hosted series between the Astros and Angels and the Cardinals and Reds. The Mariners and Athletics opened that season in Tokyo, Japan.

The Padres and Giants played the first regular-season series in Mexico City on April 29-30.
