The 2019-2020 Premier league season starts on Friday 9th August 2019. (see English Premier League fixtures in Kenyan time ):
As a tradition, the curtain raiser FA Community Shield match is played a week earlier. This year it will feature last season’s league winning team (Manchester City) and the runner up (Liverpool).
Traditionally the match is played between the winners of the previous season’s Premier League and FA Cup. As Manchester City won both competitions in 2019, the opponents will be the 2018–19 Premier League runners-up (Liverpool).
The match will be played at Wembley Stadium and Manchester City will go into the match as the defending champions.
The kick off time is at 5.00 PM on Sunday 4th August 2019.
