The exciting race that City and Liverpool have had in recent months in the Premier, but also in the FA Cup semifinal won by the ‘reds’ on April 16 at Wembley, will continue for another season.

Both teams have disputed the hegemony of English football every year since 2018 and their next challenge already has a date. Both teams will open next season on July 31 with the Community Shield at stake, the match that traditionally takes place a week before the start of the Premier (August 7) ​​between the Premier and FA Cup champions.

The King Power Stadium in Leicester, the stage

On this occasion, however, the stage will not be Wembley, since that same day the final of the Women’s European Championship will be played there. For the first time in ten years the match will move from the majestic London stadium and take place at the King Power Stadium in Leicester.

Precisely Leicester was the last champion by defeating City 1-0. Liverpool have won this trophy 15 times, but the last one dates back to 2006. The ‘citizens’ have done it 6 times, the closest being in 2019 precisely against Liverpool on penalties (1-1 and 4-5) in the which until now is the only precedent between both teams in the Community Shield.
