SAM Magazine--Los Angeles, Calif., October 3, 2013--ESPN issued the following statement today: ESPN today announced it will not continue with X Games events in Barcelona, Munich, Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil and Tignes, France. We are proud to have run world-class competitions for both the athletes and spectators; however the overall economics of these events do not provide a sustainable future path. The company remains fully committed to the X Games brand and its full-scale competitions in Aspen, Colorado and Austin, Texas —its newest host city—and we will continue to distribute these premier events around the world.
