In July 2014, Nickelodeon, along with host / executive producer NFL star Michael Strahan (LIVE with Kelly and Michael, Fox NFL Sunday), will present the Kids’ Choice Awards to the world of sports.
It will allow kids to pick their favorites in a new, live awards show–Kids’ Choice Sports 2014.
Set to take place Thursday, July 17, at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, Kids’ Choice Sports 2014 will follow Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards legacy to honor kids’ favorite athletes, teams and sports moments from the year in a big sports celebration.

The event will also feature sports stunt performed on a star athlete’s home turf, a special halftime live musical performance and top athletes competing outside their sports realm for a KCS trophy.
“It is a real honor to be the inaugural host of the Kids’ Choice Sports awards,” said Strahan. “As an athlete and as a father to four kids who grew up with Nickelodeon, I know firsthand what an important role sports play in kids’ lives. This is going to be a kids’ Super Bowl-sized event.”
Nickelodeon, now in its 34th year, is an entertainment brand for kids.
