FA Community Shield

The Football Association Community Shield (formerly the Charity Shield) is English football's annual match contested at Wembley Stadium between the champions of the previous Premier League season and the holders of the FA Cup. If the Premier League champions also won the FA Cup, then the league runners-up provide the opposition. The fixture is recognised as a competitive super cup by The Football Association[1][2][3] and UEFA.[4][5][6]

Organised by the FA, proceeds from the game are distributed to community initiatives and charities around the country. Revenue from the gate receipts and match programme sales is distributed to the 124 clubs who competed in the FA Cup from the first round onwards, for onward distribution to charities and projects of their choice, while the remainder is distributed to the FA's national charity partners.[7] The fixture was first played in the 1908–09 season, replacing the Sheriff of London Charity Shield.

The current holders are Leicester City, who defeated Manchester City 1–0 in the 2021 match.
