Summer X Games Coming to Minneapolis for 2017 and 2018
The action sports world will be converging on Minneapolis, MN this summer and next, as it was recently announced that the 2017 and 2018 Summer X Games will be held at the recently opened US Bank Stadium, the current home of the Minnesota Vikings. Summer X will be the first multi-day event to be held at the stadium, with events taking place inside and outside at the adjacent Medtronic Plaza, and Downtown East Commons. From a skateboarding perspective, events like Skateboard Big Air and possibly Skateboard Vert will likely take place in US Bank Stadium, and Skateboard Real Street would probably find its home at the plaza. The exact schedule has yet to be released, but events will be taking place from July 13-16 this year, and July 19-22 in 2018. Click here to read the full press release from ESPN.
