Also, having worked with the Minnesota Vikings in the past at U.S. Bank Stadium, the event will also feature many fan favorites previously experienced at the home of the Vikings.
“ESPN provided fans and the city of Aspen something special this past January for the winter X Games, which we were proud to be a part of,” said Matt Coy, executive vice president and general manager of Game Changer MVP. “We cannot wait to roll out even more exciting and engaging elements at this summer’s event in Minneapolis.”

On-site elements provided by Game Changer MVP will include its “Filter Fan Cam” technology as well as multiple interactive games. The fan cam feature utilizes facial recognition tools designed specifically for video board integration as live cameras capture fan images and integrate the creative filters seamlessly for display with zero delay, providing a new level of engagement and entertainment for fans on-site.
