Four-time NBA champion Stephen Curry is set to host the 2022 ESPYS. The awards show, which serves to celebrate major sports achievements and honor leading performances, will take place on July 20 at 8 p.m. ET in Los Angeles, California.

“I’ve had the pleasure of attending The ESPYS but never imagined I’d have the privilege of hosting this special event,” Curry said in a statement. “As someone who loves the intersection of sports and entertainment, I look forward to delivering an exciting show for the fans while we celebrate the athletes who created the top moments of the year.”

This year, Curry is nominated for three of the awards show’s most-esteemed trophies, including Best Athlete, Men’s Sport; Best NBA Player; and Best Record-Breaking Performance.

“Steph has long been one of the brightest stars in the sports constellation, and we’re thrilled to have him share his passion for sports, his wit and his boundless talent with The ESPYS,” said Rob King, Executive Editor-At-Large ESPN Content. ”Whether shining on the court, engaging with fans on social platforms or demonstrating a commitment to communities through varied philanthropic acts, he’s a singular performer who’ll undoubtedly add luster to our celebration of some of this year’s most compelling moments.”

Notably, Paralympian Oksana Masters also received three nominations in women’s sports, including Best Athlete, Best Olympian and Best Athlete With a Disability. ESPN previously announced that former heavyweight boxing champion Vitali Klitschko will receive the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage and retired Army Command Sergeant Major Gretchen Evans will take home the Pat Tillman Award for Service during the ceremony.

Fans can vote on each additional award on ESPN’s website.

Elsewhere, Ninja Warrior obstacle course could be included in the Los Angeles 2028 Summer Olympics.
