CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Wednesday morning, we expect to find out if Charlotte will host the 2014 X-Games. The announcement is expected to come down at 10 a.m.
Charlotte is up against Detroit, Chicago, and Austin, Texas for the ESPN contract.
Each city took to the airwaves and social media to push their brands. Local leaders believe Charlotte has a very good chance to host the games because we have Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Z-Max Drag Strip, two locations where the X-Games would be showcased.
ESPN also has a broadcast center not too far away.
But the jewel in the crown for the Queen City? She’s been home to international events before, such as the DNC, which brought accolades to the city.
The three-year contract could bring in millions of dollars for whichever city is picked to host the games.
The X-Games includes motocross, BMX racing, and competitive skateboarding.
Stay with us on WBTV.com, and we’ll have the results as soon as they are announced.
