For the first time, the show will feature three remote hosts. Wilson, Rapinoe and Bird -- who all live in the Seattle area -- will preside over the two-hour broadcast, which airs June 21 on ESPN.
"The ESPYS always have the distinct pleasure of recognizing moments of inspiration, but this year they serve the added purpose of creating a collective experience for fans and players alike who miss live sports," Rob King, ESPN senior vice president and editor at large, said in a statement.
"Part of the fun of The ESPYS is bringing together athletes from across a spectrum of sports and Sue, Megan and Russell represent a diverse lineup of teams. We're excited to see them bring their passion to hosting the show."
The event, which typically takes place in July in Los Angeles and features red-carpet strutting and about 5,000 audience members, was rescheduled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
