According to a report by Reuters, the Los Angeles Dodgers are in talks to play in Paris in the 2025 season. An MLB spokesman said the league was working on a “comprehensive international game schedule,” but didn’t reveal details. It’s unclear how many games will be played in Paris or who the Dodgers will face on the trip.

As part of the new collective agreement MLB and the MLB Players’ Association agreed to play more games internationally, and Paris is on the list of agreed locations. MLB also plans to play games in the Dominican Republic, London, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Paris and the Dominican Republic would be new destinations.

According to Reuters, the games would be played in Paris at the Stade de France. The 80,000-seat stadium opened in 1998 and is home to France’s national football and rugby teams. The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox played two games at London Stadium, another soccer venue, in 2019. Those were the first MLB games in Europe.

The Dodgers have played regular season games in Sydney, Australia and Monterrey, Mexico in recent years. MLB has not played any games outside of the United States or Canada since 2019 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The league expects to return to London in 2023.

The NBA played a game in Paris in January 2020 and will return in 2023. Paris will also host the 2024 Summer Olympics.
