Community Shield Showdown set for August 29 at Wembley

Sports News
The Community Shield will take place at Wembley on Saturday August 29

The Community Shield will take place at Wembley on Saturday August 29, the FA has confirmed.

The traditional curtain-raiser for the new season will see Premier League champions Liverpool play either Arsenal or Chelsea, who meet in this Saturday's FA Cup final.

The kick-off time for the game will be announced at a later date.

It has been reported that the match could welcome a restricted number of supporters into Wembley as part of plans for supporters to make a socially-distanced return to sports venues more widely from October 1.

The match will be immediately followed by an international break from September 2 to 10.

The announcement comes after the Premier League revealed last week that the 2020/21 season would start on September 12 and run until May 23, 2021.
