    Spotted this in Irish Examiner Community Shield is set to move away from Wembley in 2021 because of the Women’s European Championship.

    The PA news agency understands the Football Association is in discussions about moving the traditional opening fixture in the men’s club season away from Wembley,

    It will not be outside England though Pity as a lot of other leagues play their version of this match in other countries

    Shouldn't, whilst it’s a bit of a friendly no team should have an advantage. Get it at Villa park like when we played there recently

    I think they should, winning the league is a better and harder achievement than the FA cup and deserves to be rewarded. League champions get the home advantage but the opposition gets a larger capacity like in a cup game. I’d much prefer that than a nothing cash grab trip to Wembley.

    I wonder if the various community groups and charities that benefit financially from the game share that opinion?

    You can always rely on the FA....................... so my guess is it will be held in one of the following places:

    Saudi Arabia
    Qatar
    China
    USA

    It might tempt me to go if it’s at Villa Park or Cardiff.
