ESPN Creating Formal Bidding Process To Host Int'l X Games
Published May 17, 2011
The idea is to grow the franchise by generating interest in X Games through a structured competition to host the event. ESPN also hopes to enhance its international events and make them as large as its Summer X Games in L.A. It is unclear how many of the four international competitions would be summer or winter sports. ESPN last year held international X Games competitions in Rio de Janiero, Shanghai and Tignes, France. ESPN will continue to hold a domestic Winter and Summer X Games.
Sources did not know if those events would be bid on by U.S. cities or continue to be held in L.A. and Aspen as they have been in years past.
