Liverpool’s opponents for the 2020 Community Shield have been confirmed, and it is Arsenal, who booked their spot against the Reds after beating fellow North London outfit Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final.
The Community Shield pits the reigning Premier League champions (LFC in this case) against the FA Cup winners (now Arsenal) and is the traditional curtain raiser to the top-flight season.
The game will take place on August 29, 2020.
This will also be the first Community Shield meeting between the Reds and the Gunners since 2002. AFC prevailed 1-0 on that occasion thanks to a goal from Brazilian medio Gilberto Silva.
The new PL season will officially begin on September 12, 2020.
