Street League will work in conjunction with ESPN to allow Street League pros to participate in ESPN-owned events for the duration of the partnership.
Using real time scoring and an exciting proprietary competition format, Street League" will tell a compelling story about each skateboarder's performance and will have fans on the edge of their seats from the first trick to the very last.
