The Football Association have confirmed this year’s competition will be a double header with the men's and women's games.
The traditional new season curtain-raiser will take place behind-closed-doors at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 29 August.
Reigning FA Women's Cup holders City will take on Barclays FA Women’s Super League Champions Chelsea at 12:30pm, before the men's FA Cup winners Arsenal will take on Premier League Champions Liverpool at 4:30pm.
The women's game will be broadcast live on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, while the men's game will be shown BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate.
Mark Bullingham, The FA’s Chief Executive, said: “We are proud to announce the first ever double header of The FA’s Community Shield at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 29 August.
“It’s a sign of our commitment to the women’s game and its growth, to have a curtain raiser that mirrors that of the men, with another high-profile fixture at Wembley Stadium.”
