The FA Women's Community Shield is a association football match in England. It is a national super cup, and the equivalent of the FA Community Shield in male football. It is the first competitive match of the football season. The match is competed between the Champions of the FA Women's Premier League and the winners of the FA Women's Cup. When the Premier League champion also won the FA Cup, the Cup runners-up play the match.

Inauguration[edit]

The Football Association (The FA) held the first charity match in 2000 when Double winners Charlton Athletic Women's drew against Arsenal Ladies at Craven Cottage (Fulham L.F.C.) and the only time shared the title. All proceeds were donated to Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity. The Charity Shield (Community Shield since 2002) has been sponsored by Nationwide since its inauguration.
