ESPN’s X Games will be held in Minneapolis in 2017 and 2018, with many of the events being held in the Minnesota Vikings’ glass stadium.
”We’re definitely pumped,” X Games vice president Tim Reed said. He cited the ”young, vibrant aspect” of Minneapolis and the support of the city and state for the bid. He called the new, $1.1 billion stadium that opens this summer ”a beautiful building.”
This is big for the Minnesota area as well as the new stadium.
