Does the Community Shield count as a major trophy?
The key point of contention between the sets of supporters is about whether or not the Community Shield counts as a major title. Once again, it depends on who you ask.
The FA considers the Community Shield to be an official honour in English football, and it is seen as the first game of the new English top-flight season, though its status as a ‘major title’ has been contested by certain football figures and fans.
The Community Shield is seen as a minor trophy to some compared to the likes of the FA Cup and League Cup, with some referring to it as a ‘glorified friendly’ – especially as yellow card and red cards earned in the match do not carry on to other competitions.
In 2008, Ferguson stated: “The Community Shield is a prestigious match, but I have used players in it who were not quite fit, and we are more or less in the same situation again.”
However, for the most part, players and managers involved in the Community Shield respect its status as a major trophy, and regard it as the first ‘final’ of the season.
Speaking on his players’ fitness levels ahead of the 2018 Community Shield against Chelsea, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said: “We have just four or five days to prepare for the first final [Community Shield]. so we have to adapt.
“Some of them are coming back before, some are coming back after the final.”
Moreover, in 2016, ex-Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri added: “Why do you say this question, a friendly? [Since] when is the Community Shield a friendly?
“Of course we will be at the maximum and Manchester United will be at their maximum. The two teams want to win. I am very excited.”
