The FA Community Shield


A Brief History Of The FA Community Shield

The FA Charity Shield or FA Community Shield as it is now known is the traditional curtain-raiser to the English domestic football campaign.

The winners of the Premier League and the FA Cup play each other for the season's first piece of silverware.

But the competition's original format differs greatly from the current one.

When the first Community Shield match was played in 1908 between Manchester United, the then reigning Football League Champions, and Queens Park Rangers, then Southern League Champions, it was professionals versus amateurs.

This format was continued for many years and often featured teams that were assembled on a one-off basis.

Back then the games were largely informal, often played at the end of the season at neutral venues, or at the home ground of one of the teams involved.

It was then moved to coincide with the start of the new season in 1959, and has kept its place in the English football calendar ever since.

In 1974, Ted Croker, the FA Secretary, proposed that the Community Shield should be played at Wembley, and assume the role of official curtain-raiser to the season.

The first Wembley-held Shield match was watched by a 67,000-strong crowd who saw Liverpool beat Leeds 6-5 on penalty kicks after the game ended 1-1.

During the 1980s and early 1990s, if the game finished in a draw then both teams would share the Shield for six months each. The penalty shoot-out was then re-introduced in 1993.
In 2002 The FA Charity shield was renamed The FA Community Shield.
