After winning the Premier League title in spectacular fashion by achieving a comeback against AstonVilla on the last day of the season, Manchester City confirmed his place for the Community Shield 2022.
Liverpool, who were unlucky enough to finish second behind City once again at the end of the 2018/19 league campaign, are ready to go to war against the team of Pep Guardiola after winning the FA Cup last season.
With Erling Haaland’s signing already confirmed and other arrivals expected during the summer window, as club chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak recently confirmed, the traditional curtain raiser could give new signings a chance to cut their teeth at Manchester City.
It has now been confirmed that the Community Shield between Manchester City and Liverpool will be played on July 30, 2022.
The 100th edition of the competition will kick off at King Power Stadium instead of Wembley, as the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 final will take place in the ‘House of Football’ on the same weekend.
The two Premier League big guns will face off at 5pm French time, and the clash will be shown live on ITV for viewers in the UK.

Unlike the 2021/22 season, in which Manchester City lost to Leicester City in the Community Shield, they will hope to repeat their exploits from the 2019 edition of the competition by beating Liverpool once again.
The 2022 Community Shield between Premier League champions Manchester City and FA Cup holders Liverpool will be held at the King Power Stadium, Leicester City on July 30.
The traditional curtain raiser of English football has been moved from Wembley, the capital’s stadium to host the final of Women’s Euro 2022 the next day. The date has also been brought forward to take account of the Premier League start time.
Last year, the Community Shield, which saw Leicester City beat Manchester City 1-0, took place on August 7. But as the Premier League starts on August 6 this year to facilitate the Winter World Cup, the Community Shield has naturally been moved to the end of July.
Premier League schedule 2022/23: when will it be released?
This year will mark the 100th edition of the Community Shield and will see Liverpool, who beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final on penalties last month, face Premier League champions Pep Guardiola, who avoided the final day scare to secure the English title.
The last time the Community Shield was played away from Wembley was at Villa Park in 2012, as the national stadium hosted the final of the 2012 Olympic football tournament the same weekend, with Manchester City beating Chelsea 3-2 in the Midlands.
Prior to this, the Millennium Stadium hosted the Community Shield between 2001 and 2006, when the new Wembley was under construction. Then you have to go back to before 1974, when the one-off game was hosted by one of the competing teams, the last game being City’s against Burnley at Maine Road in 1973.
Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and West Ham’s London Stadium have both reportedly expressed interest in hosting the Community Shield and keeping the annual spectacle in the capital, but their proposals ultimately fell through.
The move will be a welcome one for Liverpool and City fans, who struggled to travel to London for the FA Cup semi-finals in April, and who claimed at the time that their penultimate encounter be moved further north.
