Liverpool will meet Man City in the latest edition of the Community Shield next month, and the fixture is not to take place in its usual Wembley setting.
The match is earlier than most seasons due to the World Cup in Qatar pushing the schedule forward, creating another relentless fixture list for all.
When and where is the 2022 Community Shield?
The 2022 Community Shield will take place on Saturday, July 30, with kickoff at 5pm (BST).
And it will be played at Leicester‘s King Power Stadium, which is due to the Women’s Euro 2022 final being held at Wembley on the same weekend.
With the stadium holding a capacity of 32,000, demand for tickets will certainly outweigh supply.
Where does it fall in Reds’ schedule?
Liverpool return to pre-season training on Monday, July 4 before travelling to the Far East for a friendly in Bangkok (July 12) and Singapore (July 15).
A training camp in Europe is then expected, meaning there are only 26 days from the start of pre-season to the curtain-raiser of the new Premier League season.
Liverpool’s Community Shield history
This will be the third time Klopp’s side has contested this fixture, largely regarded as a glorified pre-season friendly.
