Charlotte is one of four finalist cities to earn three-year contracts to host the North American summer X Games starting in 2014, ESPN announced Tuesday.

After more than 10 years in and around downtown Los Angeles, the X Games will depart from Southern California for a new destination. The other cities in contention are Detroit, Austin, Tex., and Chicago.

The X Games have grown significantly and been enjoyed by millions of fans over the past 10 years in Los Angeles,” Scott Guglielmino, senior vice president, programming and X Games said in a statement.

As we embark on a year of significant global expansion and transformation for X Games in 2013, we are excited about the potential each of these cities bring, and look forward to identifying our next host city for the X Games.”

A decision is expected in June.
