Chelsea to meet United in Aug 8 curtainraiser

BY foxsports • June 10, 2010

League and cup winner Chelsea will play Manchester United in the Community Shield - the English season's traditional curtainraiser - at Wembley on Aug. 8.

It will be the second consecutive season the two teams have met in the Community Shield, with Carlo Ancelotti's Chelsea running out a 4-1 winner on penalties in the 2009 edition after the game finished 2-2 in normal time.

Chelsea won the Premier League-FA Cup double last season - the first time the club has acheived such a feat - while United came second in the league.
