Where do the best bowlers and racecar drivers share the stage with the best from the NFL, NBA, and soccer? Where are women’s sports and men’s sports given the same platform? The ESPYS of course.

Each year, the ESPYS are the converging point of music, sports, and pop culture. 2021’s edition of the sports award show is set to be no different. Returning to being a live event, the 2021 ESPYS will air live from The Rooftop at Pier 17 at the Seaport in New York City on Saturday, July 10. The ESPYS took place virtually in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Who are the Host and Presenters of the 2021 ESPYS
The ESPYS are traditionally hosted by larger-than-life personalities from sports, music, and entertainment. Hosting the 2021 ESPYS is Anthony Mackie who definitely fits that bill, currently recognized for his role as “Falcon” in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Past hosts have included Drake, Lance Armstrong, Megan Rapinoe, Jon Hamm, and Peyton Manning.
An award show at the end of the day, presenters at the 2021 ESPYS awards include actors Taye Diggs and Tracy Morgan, as well as music artists DaBaby and Kane Brown. They’ll be announcing the winners of the more than 31 award categories. Honors up for grabs range from the year’s “Best Game” and “Best Record-Breaking Performance” to the best athletes in each sport. The winners are determined via fan vote from a list of nominations.

Where Can I watch the ESPYS Awads 2021?
The 2021 ESPYS are broadcast each year over the air by ABC and sibling entity, ESPN. Streaming coverage for the ESPYS requires an ESPN+ subscription. Unfortunately, these services aren’t available everywhere, and access for global sports fans may be restricted from these channels.
I recommend you check out PremiumTV, a non-contract, non-subscription service that streams the biggest sporting and entertainment events from around the world. Best of all, their high-quality stream doesn’t require a VPN service either. This Saturday, PremiumTV is offering the 2021 ESPYS for just $9.99.
