Some of the biggest stars in women's football will be on display when Macclesfield Town host the FA Tesco Women's Community Shield season curtain raiser between Arsenal and Everton on August 7, kick off is 7.45pm.
England internationals such as Faye White, Fara Williams, Jill Scott and Kelly Smith, who scored four goals at last year's World Cup, will all feature at Moss Rose in front of the live Setanta Sports cameras.
The FA are no strangers to hosting games at Macclesfield Town with their England Non-League side drawing a crowd of over 4,000 in 2004 for a friendly against Iraq. Macclesfield Town chairman, Mike Rance, is hoping that local fans will come out and show their support for female football which is still the fastest growing sport for girls across the country.
"We are delighted to have been chosen to host the FA Tesco Women's Community Shield at the Moss Rose," he said. "Women's football is ever popular and we have our own affiliated ladies club with eight teams.
"We hope to see many families from around the North West supporting what will undoubtedly be a fun occasion."
Last year's FA Women's Community Shield was put on ice due to the World Cup in China but the two sides met in the fixture in 2006 at Crewe's Gresty Road with Arsenal securing a 3-0 triumph.
Tickets for the game on August 7 are just £5 for adults and £2.50 for children and concessions. Groups of 15 people or more can take advantage of an FA discount with tickets at £3 for adults and £2 for children and concessions.
