The Toronto Blue Jays will return to Montreal next spring for a pair of exhibition games against the New York Yankees.

It’s the seventh consecutive year the Blue Jays will play pre-season games at Olympic Stadium.

Next year’s games take place on March 23 and 24 and will be Toronto’s final two tune-up games before it starts the regular season at Rogers Centre against the Boston Red Sox on March 26.

“We are excited to return to Montreal once again to celebrate the city’s rich baseball history and tradition,” Blue Jays president and CEO Mark Shapiro said in a statement. “Getting the privilege to play at Olympic Stadium in front of thousands of passionate baseball fans always reminds us of how honoured we are to represent Canadians from coast to coast.”

Previous opponents for Toronto at the event included the New York Mets, Cincinnati, Boston, Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Milwaukee.
