Villa Park will play host to this year's Community Shield on 12 August.
Wembley is being used for the previous day's Olympic Games football final.
And that means a switch to the Midlands for the traditional pre-season curtain raiser between Premier League champions Manchester City and FA Cup winners Chelsea.
Villa Park, a long-time FA Cup semi-final venue, also staged England's first home international following the dismantling of the old Wembley.
