The King Power Stadium has been confirmed as the venue for this summer’s Community Shield clash between Manchester CIty and Liverpool after replacing Wembley Stadium for the 100th edition of English football’s traditional early season fixture.
This development follows the final of the Women’s Euro 2022 coming up the following day at the Wembley stadium.
The Community Shield which is usually played at Wembley is fixed for July 30, a week before the commencement of the 2022/23 Premier League season, while the final of Women Euros comes up on July 31.
This year’s tie comes a week earlier than how it was last year to accommodate the November-December Qatar World Cup schedule.
Leicester overcame Manchester City 1-0 in last year’s fixture that took place in August.
The Premier League season will begin a week after the Community Shield on 6 August
