Community Shield: Liverpool to face Chelsea, Arsenal Aug 29

Premier League champions, Liverpool, will face the winners of Saturday’s FA Cup final between Arsenal and Chelsea on the 29th of August for the Community Shield.

The Football Association on Wednesday announced that match the will be played two weeks before the start of the top-flight season at the Wembley stadium.

It has been reported that the match could serve as a test event to welcome a restricted number of fans 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 Premier League said last week that the 2020/21 season would start on September 12 and run until May 23, 2022.
