FA Cup winners Arsenal will play Premier League champions, Liverpool, in the community shield match Saturday evening at the Wembley stadium.
Less than a month after the 2019/20 Premier League season drew to a close, the curtain rises on a new campaign as Arsenal and Liverpool meet in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium.
Liverpool are appearing in this annual fixture for the second successive year following a 2019 penalty shootout defeat by Manchester City, but this time as Premier League champions having finally ended their 30-year wait for the title.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have warmed up for the contest with a pre-season training camp in Austria that included friendlies against Stuttgart and RB Salzburg.
Like Liverpool, Arsenal are 15-time winners of the Community Shield and are set to appear in the Wembley showcase for the 24th time.
Mikel Arteta’s side finished an eventful campaign on a high note by coming from behind to defeat Chelsea 2-1 and secure a 14th FA Cup title thanks to a brace from captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Arsenal put League One opponents MK Dons to the sword in anticipation for this match in midweek.
The match, set to kick off at 630pm, will be televised LIVE on KBC Channel One.
