Arsenal or Chelsea will face Liverpool in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium on August 29, the Football Association (FA) confirmed.
Mikel Arteta's Arsenal side will go head-to-head with its London rival in the FA Cup final on Sunday
(AEST), with the winner to take on the Premier League's champion.
With the 2020-2021 top-flight campaign set to start on 12 September, the FA has announced its date for English football's traditional curtain-raiser.
Liverpool, which lost the Community Shield on penalties to Manchester City last season, had its first ever Premier League title wrapped up when Chelsea defeated Pep Guardiola's side on 25 June.
