‘Premios Univision Deportes’ Returns in December

For the second consecutive year, Univision Deportes will devote an entire night to honoring the top figures in the sports world.

Premios Univision Deportes will air live at 8 p.m. (ET) on Sunday, Dec. 18, on Univision, originating from Miami, with a simulcast on sister cable network Univision Deportes. Both networks will re-air the show at 8 p.m. (PT).

This year’s two-hour presentation will celebrate sports figures for their accomplishments on and off the field in soccer, basketball, baseball, football, boxing and auto racing, among other sports.

“We are proud to celebrate the athletes and sports talent who impact our communities,” Univision Deportes president Juan Carlos Rodriguez said. “We are back as part of our commitment to delivering the engaging content that our fanáticos crave.”

Premios Univision Deportes will be hosted by Julian Gil, actor and co-host of the long-running Univision series República Deportiva, and Jacqueline Bracamontes, actress and judge of Univision’s Nuestra Belleza Latina beauty-pageant reality show.

Premios Univision Deportes will honor 25 athletes and sports figures for their passion and excellence in sports and their connection to Hispanic-American sports fans. The awards will be presented by sports legends and Univision personalities.

The awards show will also include musical performances by Latin artists yet to be revealed by the network.
