While the Community Shield usually seems pretty far away after the end of one season, that isn’t the case this time around with such a short turnaround before the new campaign gets underway. This year Arsenal, the FA Cup winners, will go head to head with Premier League champions Liverpool for the right to claim the first trophy of the new season.
Arsenal.com has also released the official details of the game as Gunners fans look ahead to what they hope will be the sort of season we look back on in 20 years and say “wow”.
“Arsenal v Liverpool
Saturday, August 29
Kick off: 4.30pm (UK)
Live on: BT Sport”
So buckle up, folks, because before the month is done, we’ll have domestic football back in our lives once again.
Will Arsenal win the Community Shield?
