The Football Association Community Shield (formerly the Charity Shield) is an English association football trophy contested in an annual match between the champions of the FA Premier League and the winners of the FA Cup. It is equivalent to the Super Cups found in many countries. If a team wins The Double (both the Premiership and the FA Cup), then the Double winner plays the Premier League runner-up. The match is contested at the beginning of the following season, and has traditionally been played at Wembley Stadium, although for the past few seasons it has been played at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, while Wembley was being rebuilt. The newly built Wembley held the 2007 final for the first time since 2000. 1908 (MCMVIII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (link will display the full calendar). ...

While still an honour in the English game, the Community Shield's status is far lower than that of the Premier League, FA Cup or League Cup. It is widely considered to be a minor trophy, and is usually not spoken of as an honour at all. Community Shield games are almost always treated as friendlies by both sides in the modern era; this was best illustrated when Roy Keane famously failed to break a smile when lifting the trophy for Manchester United in 2003. Also of note is that no winning team in the modern era has opted to hold an end of season open-top bus parade after winning only the Community Shield, despite it being the custom in England after a club has won a trophy.

The Shield plays a major role for the FA in its efforts to raise funds for various charities throughout England. The sources for the funds include the net profits from admission tickets and sales of match day programmes. Parts of the fund are distributed to clubs who participated in the First Round Proper of the FA Cup, who are then in turn asked to nominate a charity or community-based organisation which will receive the clubs' share of the fund. The remainder of the funds will then be donated to The FA Charity Partners.[1] The Football Association (The FA) is the governing body of football in England and the Crown dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. ...

The Shield was first played for in 1908-09, replacing the Sheriff of London Charity Shield that had been introduced in 1898-99 (though the Sheriff of London Charity Shield did reappear later on two separate occasions alongside the Charity Shield). It continued the professionals versus amateurs basis of the earlier cup (the gentlemen and players tradition).

History

The first match was between Manchester United (Football League First Division champions) and Queens Park Rangers (Southern League champions). It was the only game to go to a replay with United winning the rematch; both games were played at Stamford Bridge. The competition was not highly regarded, the games were informal, end-of-season clashes with both teams often assembled just for the game. Manchester United Football Club are a world-famous English football club, based at the Old Trafford stadium in Trafford, Greater Manchester, and are one of the most popular sports clubs in the world, with over 50 million supporters worldwide. ... From 1889 until 1992, this was the highest division overall of organized football in England. ...

The competition format changed over time - initially a match between the Football League and Southern League champions, in 1913 the Shield was instead contested between Amateurs and Professionals XIs. The Shield was contested between the Football League and FA Cup winners for the first time in 1921, but the format continued to vary in the 1920s, usually along the lines of Amateurs v. Professionals, including one year (1927) where the Professionals were represented by the FA Cup holders Cardiff City and the Amateurs by Corinthians. Cardiff City Association Football Club (Welsh: Clwb Pêl-droed Dinas Caerdydd) are a football team based in Cardiff, and are one of the three Welsh clubs competing in the Football League, currently playing in the Football League Championship. ... Corinthians Football Club were a football team based in London playing at various venues including Crystal Palace and Queens Club. ...


In 1930 the Football League winner v. FA Cup winner returned, and with a few exceptions, this format has remained to the present day. Notable exceptions include the 1950 Shield, which involved the England World Cup team against an FA team that had toured Canada that summer, and the 1961 Shield, when Tottenham Hotspur became the first team of the 20th century to win the Double.

By then, the date of the game had been moved to the start of the season, from 1959 onwards. The question of which two teams should contest the Shield should one team win both the FA Cup and League continued to linger. In 1971, Arsenal became the second team to win the Double since the Shield's foundation, but owing to their commitments in the European Cup they could not take part. Leicester City were invited as Division Two champions to play FA Cup runners-up Liverpool instead and went on to win the trophy, despite then and to this day having never won either the League or the FA Cup.

In 1974 the then FA secretary, Ted Croker, created the current format with the match always being played at Wembley Stadium and the monies raised at the gate going to charity. The first game at Wembley was notable for the sendings off of Kevin Keegan and Billy Bremner for fighting, shown that night on BBC television. Both were fined £500, with Keegan was banned for three games and Bremner eight. Croker also declared that should a team win the Double then they will play the league runners-up in the Charity Shield, an arrangement that continues to this day.

The game is decided on the day with penalty shoot-out if the scores are level, though between 1949 and 1993 the Shield was usually shared if the game was drawn; West Ham United and Aston Villa are the only two clubs to have the distinction of sharing Community Shield titles with other clubs without winning one outright.

With the formation of a new top league, the FA Premier League, the Shield became a match between the Premier League and FA Cup winners from the 1993 competition onwards. In 2002, the competition was renamed the Community Shield; a small scandal surrounding questionable distribution of money raised for charities by the match led to a renaming of the match as part of a reform of the competition. Arsenal were the first winners of the Community Shield with a 1-0 victory over Liverpool. The 1993-1994 season was the 114th season of competitive football in England. ...


Liverpool beat Chelsea 2-1 through goals by John Arne Riise and Peter Crouchin the 2006 Community Shield Final.

FA Community Shield: Information from Answers.com (740 words)
The Football Association Community Shield (formerly the Charity Shield) is an English association football trophy contested in an annual match between the champions of the FA Premier League and the winners of the FA Cup.
The Shield was first played for in 1908-1909, replacing the Sheriff of London Charity Shield that had been introduced in 1898-99 (though the Sheriff of London Charity Shield did reappear later on two separate occasions alongside the Charity Shield).
The 2006 Community Shield game was the first not to be contested by Arsenal or Manchester United since 1995 when Everton beat Blackburn 1-0.
FA Community Shield - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (823 words)

The Community Shield is currently held by Liverpool, who beat Chelsea 2-1 through goals by John Arne Riise and Peter Crouch.
