The 1971 FA Charity Shield was a football match between Leicester City and Liverpool at Filbert Street on Saturday 7 August 1971.[1]

Arsenal won the double in 1970-71 but were unable to take part in the Charity Shield because they had contracted to go on a pre-season tour that clashed with the fixture.[2] The 1971 FA Cup Final runners up Liverpool and second division winners Leicester City were invited to take part instead.[3]

Leicester won the game with a goal from Steve Whitworth who tapped in at the near post after initially crossing the ball into the box.[4]
