Community Shield 2022 Preview Image

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.

Last year’s Community Shield was between Leicester City and Manchester City, where the Foxes ran out 1-0 winners at Wembley thanks to a Kelechi Iheanacho penalty in the 89th minute.

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.

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.
