Community Shield's London beginnings and onwards
Originally referred to as the Football Association Charity Shield back in 1898, the Community Shield was originally set up to replace the Sheriff of London Charity Shield, a match annually played between the leading amateur clubs. As you can imagine, the Community Shield has gone through a number of format revisions, however, considering the match's origins, the spirit of amateurs v professionals has continued to this day! Much like its participants, when the Community Shield takes place has also varied over the years. The fixture was moved to the start of the season back in the seventies, and after the formation of the Premier League the community Shield's idea to pit Premier League winners against FA Cup winners has been the reason tens of thousands of fans continue to buy their Community Shield tickets!
