Details Surrounding The FA Community Shield 2011



Both Manchester City and Manchester United will battle it out for the FA Community Shield, formerly known as the Charity Shield on Sunday 7 August 2011.

Wembley Stadium will see around 70,000 Mancs travel to the capital at the beginning of the English football season. In other words the paltry 25,000 tickets allocated to the Blue half of Manchester for the FA Cup final will rise by approximately 10,000, albeit the number is subject to confirmation.



Community Shield match rules

The match lasts 90 minutes, comprising of two 45 minute periods that are separated by a 15 minute break. If the scores are level after 90 minutes the match will go to a penalty shootout, where each side takes five penalty kicks each, and the winner is the team who scores more goals in the shootout. If the scores are level after each team has taken five penalty kicks, the match goes to sudden death, whereby each team takes one penalty kick each in succession, and the winner is the team who scores their sudden death kick when the other team misses.

Ticket prices

Ticket prices for the 2010 FA Community Shield ranged from 40, 30, 20 and 15, with The Football Association distributing all proceeds to charitable projects across England. With 86,000 fans attending the 2009 event, over 2 million was expected to be donated to charity.

Interest in this years competition is expected to top last years attendance and that includes the usual dignitaries and prawn sandwich brigade.

Further details will be announced in due course.
