“There’s a reason our sponsors return to X Games properties year over year: we have a proven connection between X Games sponsorships and fan affinity to the brands that partner with us,” said Valerie Ryan, Director of Partnerships, Event Marketing & VIP Experiences. “Our sponsors are less business partners and more families who have an active role in how they are positioned on-site and in our linear/digital broadcasts.
