Anthony Mackie announced as the host of the 2021 ESPY’s

Actor and producer Anthony Mackie, best known for his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Sam Wilson/The Falcon, will host The ESPYS next month from The Rooftop at Pier 17 at the Seaport in New York City.

The 2021 ESPYS will follow the 2020 Covid-19 Return-to-Work Safety Agreement with the AMPTP and all relevant city, state and CDC guidelines.

The ESPYS help to raise awareness and funds for the V Foundation for Cancer Research, the charity founded by ESPN and late basketball coach Jim Valvano at the first ESPYS in 1993. ESPN has helped raise more than $134 million for the V Foundation over the past 28 years.
