Todd Spangler NY Digital Editor The X Games is shifting to a team-based league structure — and it wants to be in your face over the full calendar year.

The action-sports competition franchise on Thursday unveiled the X Games League: a new global, team-based format to be introduced in 2026 with year-round events.

The X Games League (or “XGL”) will let athletes earn compensation beyond the $2.4 million already awarded annually through existing prize purses, according to the company.

ESPN, which founded the X Games in 1994, sold a majority interest in the competition series in 2022 to private-equity firm MSP Sports Capital.
