X Games to scale back global events for 2014

October 3rd, 2013 by

ESPN announced today that it will discontinue X Games events in Barcelona, Spain; Munich, Germany; Foz do Iguacu, Brazil; and Tignes, France. With Tignes off the roster, X Games Aspen returns to its former status as the only full scale winter X Games event.

ESPN Statement, October 3, 2013:

ESPN today announced it will not continue with X Games events in Barcelona, Munich, Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil and Tignes, France. We are proud to have run world-class competitions for both the athletes and spectators; however the overall economics of these events do not provide a sustainable future path. The company remains fully committed to the X Games brand and its full-scale competitions in Aspen, Colorado and Austin, Texas—its newest host city—and we will continue to distribute these premier events around the world.
