Actor Anthony Mackie will host ESPYS on its return to New York next month. ESPY honors top athletes and sports moments for the current year.

Taking the coronavirus pandemic into play, the show will follow return-to-work guidelines as well as relevant protocols of the city and state and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Los Angeles was its venue for eighteen years. Its first seven editions were held in New York at Madison Square Gardens or Radio City Music Hall.

The show will air July 10 live on ABC from The Rooftop at Pier 17 at the Seaport.
