Although the world of sports has looked a lot different this year, The 2020 ESPYs are still set to air this Sunday, June 21 starting at 9 pm. The show will take on a different format than previous years, but it will still be a star-studded, two-hour event celebrating sports, as well as addressing the unique circumstances this year has brought.
Hosted by three-time WNBA Champion Sue Bird, two-time World Cup Champion and Olympic medalist Megan Rapinoe, and Super Bowl Champion quarterback Russell Wilson, the night will be filled with a look back at the year in sports, as well as heartwarming and comedic stories. Watch as LA delivers a love letter tribute to Kobe Bryant along with a performance by Snoop Dogg, Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce exchange a lighthearted call celebrating their Superbowl win, and a powerful segment where athletes address the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“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. “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.”
“The ESPYS have long provided a platform for athletes to speak truth to power,” said Rob King, Senior Vice President and Editor-at-Large, ESPN Content. “As we face a world in which advocates and allies are boldly addressing our nation’s continued path toward racial justice and equity, both in and out of the sports community, we’re proud to present a collection of stories and moments dedicated to this critical time.”
