The San Francisco Giants are heading to Mexico City.

Major League Baseball announced on Wednesday that the Giants will travel to Alfredo Harp Helú Stadium in Mexico City, Mexico to play a two-game set against the San Diego Padres on April 29th and 30th, 2023.

These games will be the first international games for the San Francisco Giants in their 140-year history.  In 2004, they traveled to San Juan, Puerto Rico for a three-game series against the Montreal Expos

Both games, which will serve as Padres home games, will represent the first-ever regular season series played in Mexico City.  In 2016, the Padres hosted the Astros for a two-game exhibition series at Fray Nano Stadium in Mexico City.

“It will be an honor to represent Major League Baseball, as well as San Francisco, at historic Mexico City for the first time ever,” Giants President and CEO Larry Baer said Wednesday through a team-issued release. “We look forward to bringing the Giants and Padres rivalry to a passionate sports fan base and it will be a great opportunity to introduce the Giants to an international audience to further develop new fans across all of Mexico.”

“The Padres are excited to return to Mexico and play in the first regular season series in Mexico City in MLB history,” said Padres CEO Erik Greupner.  “We are fortunate to have a loyal and passionate fan base in Mexico, and it will be an honor to showcase our team in Mexico’s capital city at the beautiful new ballpark built by and named after Padres minority owner Alfredo Harp Helú.”
