More than 100 of the best athletes in sport’s most extreme disciplines will gather in Cardiff, Wales next spring when the world’s preeminent action sports competition takes place for the first time ever outside the U.S.
Global sport and entertainment leaders Nitro Circus and Live Nation have partnered with Visit Wales, Principality Stadium and Cardiff Council to bring Nitro World Games Wales 2020 to Cardiff on the bank holiday weekend, 23 – 24 May. Next year, elite competitors in freestyle motocross, BMX, skate and freestyle scooter will face off not only for a coveted trophy, but more importantly for ultimate bragging rights as a world champion.
Nitro World Games Wales 2020 will take over Principality Stadium with five electrifying action sports disciplines, all of which push the limits of gravity. Freestyle Motocross and BMX Best Trick each take big air action to the next level thanks to the world’s biggest and tallest ramps, and both have been fan favorites since the event’s inception. Also a fixture is BMX Best Triple Hit, requiring a singular combination of aerial agility and technical consistency necessary to land three tricks in quick succession. Skate Vert, a recent addition to Nitro World Games, will see top athletes take on the halfpipe, and rounding out the event is Scooter Best Trick, featuring one of action sports’ fastest growing disciplines and the biggest ramp used in competition.
While the world-class competition will have attendees on the edge of their seats, there will be plenty of action happening outside the stadium as well. After cheering on the athletes and their spectacular successes, fans can share that celebratory spirit by enjoying the wide variety of live entertainment and great food Cardiff has to offer. Over the course of the holiday weekend, Nitro World Games Wales will become a vibrant festival of sport and culture. Further announcements regarding the fan experience are coming soon.
Since 2016, Nitro World Games has revolutionized action sports competition. With a mix of exciting, adrenaline-charged events, huge big air formats and innovative ramp design, it has given top athletes from across the globe the opportunity to reach ever greater heights and achieve breathtaking world’s firsts. Groundbreaking accomplishments – such as Gregg Duffy’s motorcycle double frontlfip and Harry Bink’s frontflip rock solid – have redefined what’s possible while captivating fans of all ages.
