The 2000 FA Charity Shield (also known as The One 2 One FA Charity Shield for sponsorship reasons) was the 78th FA Charity Shield, an annual football match played between the winners of the previous season's Premier League and FA Cup competitions. The match was played between Manchester United, who won the 1999–2000 Premier League, and Chelsea, who won the 1999–2000 FA Cup, and was the 27th and final Charity Shield match to be played at the old Wembley Stadium before an eight-year redevelopment project. It resulted in a 2–0 Chelsea win, thanks to goals from Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Mario Melchiot. Roy Keane was sent off for a challenge on Gus Poyet and was the last person to be sent off at the old Wembley.



Making their debuts for Chelsea were Mario Stanić and club record signing Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, while fellow new signing Eiður Guðjohnsen was on the bench; Fabien Barthez made his first appearance for Manchester United as the latest goalkeeper in the club's search for a replacement for Peter Schmeichel, who retired at the end of the 1998–99 season. Manchester United had to make an early substitution as Mikaël Silvestre suffered a hip injury and was replaced by Jaap Stam in the 19th minute. Just three minutes later, Hasselbaink opened the scoring for Chelsea via a deflection off Jaap Stam after being put through on goal by a header from Gus Poyet. Melchiot got the second in the 73rd minute, hitting a low, left-footed shot past Fabien Barthez.[1] It was Chelsea's second Charity Shield title, coming 45 years after their first victory in the showpiece match.
