The Community Shield 2022 is fast approaching, so here we have everything you need to know about the upcoming game.
The Community Shield is always the first chance for English clubs to get their hands on some silverware before the season officially kicks off. The two teams that face off are decided by the previous year’s FA Cup and Premier League winners. In the event that a club wins both of these honours, the runner-up in the Premier League for the previous season will be the side that appears in the fixture.
This year we have Manchester City returning to face Liverpool in what should be a match of the highest footballing calibre. So with this – here’s everything you need to know about the Community Shield 2022.
Date & Time
The Community Shield 2022 will take place on the 31st of July 2022, with the game being brought forward slightly as the new Premier League season is due to get underway on August 5th 2022.
The match will kick off at 5:00 PM BST.
As mentioned previously, the two sides facing off in the Community Shield 2022 will be Manchester City and Liverpool.
These two sides are looking like some of the best in world football at the moment, so it’s bound to be an exciting game. There could be some new talent on show during the fixture as well, with Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips and Darwin Nunez all being new summer recruits that could feature.

UPDATE 25th July 2022: Unfortunately – all tickets have now been sold for the Community Shield 2022.
The 2022 Community Shield will be played outside of Wembley, with the venue set to be the King Power Stadium, Leicester.
This is because Wembley is being used at that time for the Women’s European Championships – meaning a neutral venue was chosen.
The King Power Stadium is the chosen venue thanks to Leicester being the current holders of the Community Shield.
