Last season's curtain-raiser, won by Manchester City, was moved to Villa Park due to the London Olympics.
But this summer's clash between Premier League champions United and FA Cup winners Wigan is back at its traditional home with a 2pm kick-off on Sunday, 11 August.
The fixture will see David Moyes take charge of his first competitive match as United boss, while Roberto Martinez's as yet unnamed successor will lead the relegated Latics for the first time.
"You have to go all the way back to 1985 for the last time that Manchester United played in this fixture without Sir Alex Ferguson on the touchline so the eyes of the world will be on the Community Shield and Wembley when David Moyes leads them out in August," said the FA's general secretary, Alex Horne.
"Wigan Athletic provided a fairytale ending to this season's FA Cup Final, which was fitting in our 150th anniversary year, and it will be great to welcome them back to Wembley as they take on the double challenge of Europa League football and the Championship."
United have been allocated 35,000 tickets - priced between £20 and £45 -while Wigan have been given 15,000.
"Manchester United travel in great numbers while Wigan Athletic's allocation is based on the attendances across their two visits to Wembley in The FA Cup last season," Horne added.
"The 2pm kick-off time has been agreed by all the relevant authorities and means that both sets of supporters can travel back to the North West."
