A new season in England unofficially kicks off today as defending Premier League champions Manchester City face off against FA Cup winners Chelsea in the FA Community Shield.
After building a reptuation as big spenders in recent years, Manchester City have yet to sign a new player in this year's transfer window and enter the Community Shield with essentially the same roster that captured the Premier League title back in May. Chelsea, meanwhile, have signed the likes of Eden Hazard, Marko Marin, and Oscar while seeing big names like Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou leave the club.
In Germany, two heavyweights and contenders for this year's Bundesliga crown will meet in the German Super Cup, as Bayern Munich host rivals Borussia Dortmund.
The Superclasico between the Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA headlines Sunday's MLS action, but a pair of Eastern Conference matchups will also see the New England Revolution face the Montreal Impact, and the Philadelphia Union take on the Chicago Fire.
