The FA Community Shield is a yearly cup competition played between the winners of the Barclay’s Premier League and the FA Cup
. It’s the first chance leading English teams get to test our their new squads after the Summer transfer window and usually gives a good indication of a team’s strength before the Premier League kicks off. Hosted at Wembley Stadium, the Charity Shield has seen great games between English football elite, including Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City and in recent years games have pushed into extra time and penalties, only adding to the drama. Formerly known as the Charity Shield, the Community Shield was first played before the 1908-09 season, replacing the Sheriff of London Charity Shield which previously saw pro players take on amateur players in a famous British Cup.
