The Football Association Community Shield (formerly and colloquially known as the Charity Shield) is a trophy contested in an annual match between the champions of the FA Premier League and the winners of the FA Cup, though this tradition was only established twenty years into the fixture's existence. The Shield was first played for in 1908-09, replacing the Sheriff of London Charity Shield that had been introduced in 1898-99. The net profits from admission tickets and sales of match day programmes are passed on to various charities for which the FA is involved in fundraising.

The match is contested at the beginning of the following season, and since 1974 has been played at Wembley Stadium, although it was played at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales while Wembley was being rebuilt.
