The football season's only just ended, but it starts right up again today. The Community Shield (née Charity Shield) is of course English football's traditional curtain-raiser, and this afternoon's game will be contested by Liverpool, the Premier League champions, and Arsenal, the FA Cup winners. Liverpool played in last season's Community Shield too, but only because Man City had won both of the major domestic competitions. The sad news is that Liverpool vs Arsenal will be played in the gaping chasm of an empty Wembley Stadium, but read on for details on how to live stream the Community Shield from anywhere.

Community Shield 2020: Liverpool vs Arsenal

Kick-off is at 4.30pm BST, with coverage starting on BT Sport 1 in the UK at 4pm. For those of you looking to tune in from America, the game starts at 11.30am ET/8.30am PT.

It isn't the most prestigious competition, but a trophy's a trophy - we all remember Man City's, ahem, 'Fourmidables' - and the Community Shield offers a nice way for the players to ease themselves into a new season, and the fans to see the new signings and kits on show. 

There may not be a huge number of new faces on show today though, as the transfer market hasn't yet reached silly season, but there'll be hope that Willian and William Saliba turn out for the Gunners, and that Kostas Tsimikas and some of Liverpool's younger players get a runout.

There are usually goals when Liverpool play Arsenal. They played each other three times last season, exchanging 17 goals as Liverpool won twice and Arsenal once. The League Cup tie was the pick of the bunch, ending 5-5 and going to penalties, with Liverpool's youngsters putting in a very impressive showing.

No matter who you support, this could be a really entertaining game. Here's how to live stream Liverpool vs Arsenal and watch the Community Shield online - no matter where you are.
