If you’re a sports fanatic, no awards show can match the excitement and anticipation of the ESPYs. Presented by ABC, and previously ESPN, the ESPY awards (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly) recognizes the accomplishments of athletes and teams in various sports during the course of the year. Similar to the Oscars or Emmy Awards, the ESPYs bring together the biggest and best stars in sports. With the ESPY Awards Guide, you can get tickets to this event, which will be held July 13 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, starting at $48.
The ESPYs were inaugurated in 1993 as a way of awarding superlative performances. Originally, the ESPYs were awarded based on fan voting; however, since 2004, sportswriters and sports executives have decided the winners. Celebrities usually host the event and conduct the awards in a lighthearted, comedic fashion. Professional wrestler John Cena hosted the event last year.
There are currently 41 award categories at the ESPYs, including 18 individual categories recognizing the achievements of athletes in different sports such as professional basketball, football, baseball, hockey, soccer, bowling, tennis, race car driving, fishing, fighting (mixed martial arts, boxing or wrestling), golf, and track and field.
Golfer Tiger Woods is the most decorated ESPY award winner with 21 such awards.
When you attend the ESPY awards, you not only get a seat to one of the grandest spectacles in all of sports, but you help contribute to a worthy cause. A portion of the ticket sales goes to the V Foundation for cancer research. The foundation was founded by former college basketball coach Jim Valvano, who guided North Carolina State to a stunning upset in the 1983 NCAA Tournament championship game.
The ESPYs are a one-of-a-kind opportunity for you to get an up-close look at renowned athletes and to join with fans in celebrating amazing plays and performances. Get tickets today and take advantage of this amazing occasion.
