The game, played the week before we all kick off, will be between FA Cup winners Chelsea and Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City
Villa CEO Paul Faulkner said: 'All football fans will know that Villa Park is an iconic stadium with wonderful facilities and a rich heritage of staging England internationals, FA Cup semi-finals and big-occasion games. We're proud of our pitch - the best in the country - and we are confident that Villa Park will provide a great stage for what I'm sure will be an entertaining start to the new season, a new season that we are all excited about and looking forward to."
Alex Horne, General Secretary of the FA, said: 'Villa Park is one of English football's most iconic grounds and has a wonderful tradition of hosting some of the game's biggest matches, including 16 England internationals and 55 FA Cup semi-finals. Once we knew the Olympic football schedule, we worked hard to secure a suitable alternative venue for The FA Community Shield 2012 and we are delighted that Aston Villa have agreed to host the season's traditional curtain-raiser.'
