Liverpool, Arsenal FA Community Shield airs live on StarTimes this weekend
The 2020/21 season will get underway this weekend with the Community Shield airing live and in HD on affordable pay-TV platform, StarTimes.
League champions Liverpool will take on FA Cup Winners Arsenal in the 2020 FA Community Shield.
It will be broadcast on World Football Channel on Saturday, August 29 at 4:30 pm.
It has been reported that the match could serve as a test event to welcome a restricted number of supporters into Wembley as part of plans for supporters to make a socially distanced return to sports venues more widely from October 1.
The increased safety measures from the government in late July may mean fans will not be able to attend.
Arsenal have won seven of the nine times they stood in the final since 1998, while Liverpool – who have made less frequent trips to the final in recent times – won nine of 12 finals since 1982. However, three of those wins were shared as the FA only introduced extra time and penalties after 1991.
The match will be immediately followed by an international break from September 2 to 10 with Germany facing Spain, Sweden against France and titleholder Portugal vs. Croatia, among others, in the Euro Nations League which will also air on StarTimes. And then La Liga Santander starting September 12.
