The Football Association Community Shield (formerly the Charity Shield) is English football's yearly match held at Wembley Stadium. It is played between the winners of the previous Premier League season and the holders of the FA Cup. If the Premier League winners also won the FA Cup, then the league second place finishers are the opponents. The fixture is recognised as a competitive super cup by the Football Association[1][2][3] and UEFA.[4][5][6]

Notes
  1. ^ Leicester City, Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa and Burnley were invited to take part in those three Shield. Other teams might also have been the runner-ups of the FA Cup or the defending champions of the shield throughout the years, however, it is represented how they qualified as the First Division and FA Cup winners didn't want to or were unable to compete.
  2. ^ The FA invited Corinthians FC to take part as an amateur representative against FA Cup winners Cardiff City.
  3. ^ In matches between the First Division/Premier League champions and FA Cup winners, the First Division/Premier League champion won the Shield 42 times and the FA Cup winner 19 times, while it was shared 10 times.
