Despite the lack of live sports during the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 ESPY Awards are set to take place on Sunday, June 21. The ceremony will look a lot different than in recent years, with the ceremony being held virtually because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
This year, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and USWNT Sue Bird and Megan Rapinoe will serve as hosts.
“While this is an extraordinary time to be producing an awards show, The ESPYS has always strived to meet the moment — to tackle the issues and stories most relevant and meaningful to our athletes and their fans. This year will be no exception,” said Jeff Smith of MaggieVision Productions, who is the executive producer of The ESPYS, said in a statement. “There will still be sports highlights and comic relief, but this year’s show will be more focused than ever on elevating the voices of athletes and shining a light on the inspiring work they do, on the field and off.”
