FA Community Shield 2013:
Wigan Athletic v Manchester United!
The 2013 annual FA Community Shield match at London's Wembley Stadium sees FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic play Premiership champions Manchester United on Sunday 11th August 2013.
Wigan sprung one of the greatest shocks in FA Cup Final history in May when they beat big-spending reigning Premiership champions Manchester City in the Wembley finale, with a last-minute goal scored by Ben Watson. Wigan's opponents are the 13-times Premiership champions, Manchester United, who will be led out for the first time by new manager David Moyes after Sir Alex Ferguson's surprise retirement in May 2013.
