Event description

X Games is bringing action sports to people all around the world with events in Aspen, Colo., Minneapolis, Minn., and beyond. ESPN, the leading action sports content provider and creator of the X Games, has chosen Minneapolis, Minnesota, as the next U.S. host city for the X Games. Minneapolis will host an X Games summer event for the next two years at the new, state-of-the-art U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis. The events will take place July 19 – 22, 2018. The selection follows a highly competitive bidding process in which Minneapolis ultimately edged out multiple cities bidding to host the X Games summer event for 2017 and 2018.

Volunteering opportunities

Fill out our volunteer form to be contacted for volunteer opportunities. Are you a people person who enjoys greeting and helping people? Do you like to be in the know about the big events coming to town? Do you have a passion for sports, as a fan, athlete or coach? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then sign up to be a Sports Minneapolis volunteer! Yes, we’ll need volunteers for the big events, like the Super Bowl and the NCAA Men’s Final Four, but we also need volunteers for our smaller events like the U.S. Paralympics Track & Field National Championships, the National Collegiate Hockey Conference’s Annual Frozen Faceoff Fan Fest and more. Each of these is a great opportunity to get involved and help connect the community through sports. Volunteering for more events will help you build your volunteer resume, which may help you get volunteer positions for the big events, possibly even before they are open to everyone else. If you need immediate assistance, please call Dolores Karan at 612-767-8184.
