Huddle up FA Community Shield fans, it’s time for a fiery doubleheader. The matches kick off in London’s Wembley Stadium with the women’s match at 7:30 a.m. ET  followed by the men’s at 11:30 a.m. This pair of soccer games marks the beginning of the English soccer season — a tradition that rarely disappoints.

The women’s game, on the other hand, is back for the first time since 2008. This year pits the Barclays FA Women’s Super League champions, Chelsea, against the 2019 Women’s FA Cup winners, Manchester City. So, without further ado, here’s how to watch the FA Community Shield online (spoiler: it’s being broadcast exlcusively through ESPN+ in the U.S., with a one-month subscription coming in at only $6).
