The 2007 FA Community Shield was a football match played on 5 August 2007 between 2006–07 Premier League champions Manchester United and 2006–07 FA Cup winners Chelsea. Manchester United won the game 3–0 on penalties, after the match finished 1–1 after 90 minutes; the Community Shield never plays extra time. Ryan Giggs opened the scoring in the 35th minute, before Florent Malouda equalised just before half-time.

The match then went to penalties, in which Chelsea went first. Edwin van der Sar saved Chelsea's first three penalties, leaving Wayne Rooney with the chance to win the match for United.

It was the first Community Shield to be played at the new Wembley Stadium. Manchester United and Chelsea also contested the last Community Shield (then the Charity Shield) to be played at Wembley, seven years before, with Chelsea winning the match 2–0.
