Manchester City vs Arsenal: Community Shield date announced

The 2023 Community Shield match between Manchester City and Arsenal will be played at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday, August 6.

Manchester City emerged victorious in the Premier League last season, overhauling Arsenal on the run-in to secure the title with contemptuous ease.

Pep Guardiola’s side added the FA Cup and Champions League to their trophy haul to secure a famous treble.

They will now face Arsenal in the curtain-raiser to the English season, and both teams will be eager to lay down an early marker.

Last year’s Community Shield match between Manchester City and Liverpool was staged at Leicester’s King Power Stadium.

Wembley Stadium will also host several other significant football fixtures in the upcoming season.

The Championship play-off final will be staged on Sunday, May 26, while the Champions League final will grace the Wembley pitch six days later.

Wembley last hosted the final in 2013, when Bayern Munich defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-1 to claim the title for the first time in 12 years.

The FA Cup final will take place on May 25 – six days after the final round of matches in the Premier League.

League One and League Two will have their time in the spotlight when their respective play-off finals are staged on May 18 and 19.
