The FA have confirmed that the 2019 Community Shield clash between City and Liverpool will take place on Sunday, 4th August. The game will be played at Wembley Stadium with a 3pm kick off.

City earned their place in the season curtain-raiser by virtue of winning both the Premier League and the FA Cup last season, as part of an unprecedented domestic treble. Liverpool were invited to participate as league runners-up.

The Blues will be looking to retain the title they won in 2018, courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Chelsea.
