Summer X Games Coming to Austin

It is very exciting that Summer X Games is coming to Austin for at least the next 4 years. We were among 4 finalists with Chicago, Charlotte and Detroit, and luckily we were able to land the event after an 8-month evaluation process. The games were originally scheduled for May 15-18 but it appears the dates have changed to June 5-8 2014 according to xgamesaustin.com. It will be at the new 1,500-acre Circuit of the Americas sports and entertainment complex in southeast Austin.

For those unfamiliar with the Summer X Games, below is a list of the events. It features the world’s best athletes in Skateboarding, BMX, Moto X and Rally. The annual X Games continues to be the most compelling event on the action sports calendar. It is a very unique opportunity to be able to see these events live in our own backyard.

Circuit of the Americas (COTA) is the first to be built in the US for Formula One Racing held at its 3.427 mile motor racing circuit on 1,500 acres in southeast Austin. This event brings so many new faces from both the US and abroad which is awesome for our local economy. Having such a huge complex allows for multiple events to be hosted here from races to big concerts at the Amphitheater and now most recently the Summer X Games. Ticket prices have yet to be announced but being home for the Games the next 4 years will give you plenty of time to witness and experience these events in person.
