The 2012 FA Community Shield was contested between 2011-12 FA Cup winners Chelsea and Premier League Champions Manchester City on 12 August 2012. Due to the London 2012 Olympic Games the match could not be played at Wembley Stadium, so Villa Park was selected as the neutral venue. In a physical match Fernando Torres gave the Blues the lead five minutes before the break, but Branislav Ivanović was shown a straight red card a couple of minutes later for a late tackle on his compatriot Aleksandar Kolarov. City took control early in the second half with three goals in 12 minutes before Ryan Bertrand scored his first goal for Chelsea with just over ten minutes left, but the Blues couldn't find an equaliser.
