The FA Community Shield

2023 FA Community Shield kick-off time changed to 16:00 BST

Tuesday 20 Jun 2023

The 2023 FA Community Shield between Manchester City and Arsenal at Wembley Stadium will now kick off at 16:00 BST on Sunday 6 August.

The new earlier kick off time for the traditional ‘curtain raiser’ of the domestic season has been agreed following consultation with our broadcast partners, the local authorities, police, and the competing clubs. 

The decision to move the kick off time was taken following full consideration of the transport challenges for fans returning to Manchester after the match. 
Ticketing details for the 2023 FA Community Shield will be announced at the earliest opportunity.
