We answer some of your questions on Community Shield
The FA Community Shield usually takes place at Wembley Stadium. In 2022 it was moved to the King Power Stadium due to the Women’s Euro’s Final but for 2023 it will be returned to Wembley Stadium.
The date for the game varies each year, but it is usually around the first weekend in August, on the Sunday. The kick off time can also vary, but is generally around 4pm.
The opening trophy of the season is played by the winners of the Premier League and the FA Cup from the previous season. If the same team wins both trophies, they will play the runners up in the Premier League for the Community Shield.
General admission tickets for the game don’t usually go on sale until around a few weeks before. These are purchased directly through the clubs in the game. If you would like premium tickets, hospitality or simply to guarantee your place at the Community Shield then you can purchase these through Events Hospitality at any point during the season. Please just email us on [email protected] for availability.
You can choose from Club Wembley tickets for the Community Shield, which don’t include food and drink but give you access to the premium tier, with plenty of bars, lounges and relaxing areas to enjoy. To take advantage of full hospitality, the Bobby Moore Club is the best option, with all-inclusive food and drink. For larger groups, Corporate Boxes for the Community Shield are popular and suitable for groups of 8, 12 or 20 people. To understand the best option for you, just call us on 0208 053 0278

The Kick off for the Community Shield will be confirmed around a month before the game. The game is nearly always on a Sunday, usually around the first weekend in August. Club Wembley (and all hospitality areas) will open from 3 hours before, as well as staying open for an hour afterwards.
This will be decided a few weeks before the games, when we know the teams. Club Wembley is a neutral tier, so it will be mixed fans of both teams.
