CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- Charlotte was named one of four cities that could host the Summer X Games starting in 2014.

The X Games have been hosted in Los Angeles for 10 years. Other cities interested in hosting were able to submit bids in October.

"The X Games have grown significantly and has 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.

Chicago, Detroit and Austin, Texas are the three other finalist cities under consideration. The city chosen will earn a three-year contract to host the games.

The final decision is expected to be made this summer.
