FA Community Shield Match - Curtain-raiser New Season

Community Shield Match - Curtain-raiser for the New Season

Did you get your football tickets yet for the mouth-watering clash of the Manchester clubs at Wembley Stadium in 2011’s FA Community Shield match sponsored by McDonald’s on August 7th, 2011.

With Manchester City lifting their first major honor in 35 years by winning The FA Cup in May - they secured their spot in the traditional curtain-raiser for the new season and on the same day that they were victorious at Wembley, their local Red Devil rivals were also confirmed as Premier League champions.

This year’s game will be a repeat of The FA Cup Semi-Final, which ended in City winning 1-0 courtesy of Yaya Toure’s goal so United will be determined to avenge that result as well as try to set their own agenda for the 2011-12 campaign.

But City will be determined to establish themselves as  English football’s front-runners and they will see this as another opportunity to pull themselves onto the same platform as their neighbours so this year’s exciting Shield should not be missed.
