ENGLAND – Arsenal will take on Liverpool in the Community Shield on August 29.
This follows their 2-1 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday.
The Reds have booked their place in the Shield game by emerging Premier League champions for the first time in 30 years.
In 2019, they took part due to Manchester City winning both the league and the FA Cup.
Liverpool have lifted the Community Shield 15 times in their history, with the last coming in 2006.
They are currently tied with Arsenal for the second-most wins in the trophy’s history, with United the only side to win it more times (21).
Jurgen Klopp’s men will then begin their Premier League defence on the weekend of September 12.
