Manchester City's Community Shield encounter with FA Cup winners Chelsea on August 12 will kick-off at 1.30pm.

The game is being played at Villa Park as Wembley is unavailable due to its status as an Olympic venue.

It will be City's second successive appearance in the traditional curtain-raiser, having lost out to Manchester United last term.
