When is the 2019 FA Community Shield and who is in it? All you need to know

Man City claim the first ever English men's domestic treble and match the largest FA Cup final margin of victory since 1903.

Find out the date and details of the 2019 FA Community Shield, which can be watched LIVE in the U.S. on ESPN+.

Where is the 2019 FA Community Shield being played?

The match will be played at Wembley Stadium in London.

The stadium has an official capacity of 90,000 for football, but the largest attendance was 89,874 in for the 2008 FA Cup final (Cardiff City vs. Portsmouth).

The ground, which re-opened in May 2007 after a complete rebuild, is England's nation stadium and hosts all major finals plus other events such as NFL and concerts. 

Who is in the Community Shield?

Usually, the winners of the Premier League will face the winners of the FA Cup.

Because Manchester City won both competitions, they will play Liverpool (as Premier League runners-up) in the Community Shield.

When does the match kick off?

The match will take place on Sunday, Aug. 4 -- the weekend before the Premier League begins -- with a kickoff time of 3 p.m. BST / 10 a.m. ET.

Who is the referee?

The FA will announce the match referee closer to the game.

Who won the FA Community Shield last year?

Manchester City beat Chelsea 2-0 with both goals coming from Sergio Aguero.
