The 2000 FA Charity Shield was the 78th FA Charity Shield, an annual football match played between the winners of the previous season's Premier League and FA Cup competitions. The match was played between Manchester United, who won the 1999–2000 Premier League, and Chelsea, who won the 1999–2000 FA Cup, and resulted in a 2–0 Chelsea win. The goals were scored by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Mario Melchiot. Roy Keane was sent off for a challenge on Gustavo Poyet and was the last person to be sent off at the old Wembley Stadium.

Chelsea club record signing Hasselbaink was on the scoresheet on his Chelsea debut, scoring after a flick-on from Poyet which deflected in off Jaap Stam. Melchiot got the second in the 73rd minute, hitting a low, left-footed shot past Fabien Barthez. Also making their debuts for Chelsea were new signings Mario Stanić and Eiður Guðjohnsen. Goalkeeper Fabien Barthez was Manchester United's only debutant in the game.
