The ABC Television Network and ESPN announced The 2015 ESPYS will move to ABC and broadcast live on Wednesday, July 15, from Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The celebration of the best moments from the year in sports kicks off with SportsCenter at The ESPYS and the Countdown Show airing from 3-4 p.m. and 4-5 p.m., respectively, on ESPN prior to the start of the awards.

The award show gathers top celebrities from sports and entertainment to commemorate the past year in sports by recognizing major sports achievements, reliving unforgettable moments and saluting the leading performers and performances. The ESPYS raise more than $1 million annually for The V Foundation, the charity founded by ESPN and the late basketball coach Jim Valvano to promote cancer research.

The application site for media credentials for The 2015 ESPYS will open in early June. For additional ESPYS news and information, please follow the official Twitter handle: @ESPYS.
