Here’s all you need to know about the first domestic cup news of the new season…
Who’s in the draw?
Every team from the Championship, League One and League Two – so 72 teams. Harrogate Town, promoted as National League play-off winners last season, will take part in the competition for the first time in their history, while Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich, all relegated from the Premier League in July, will also be back in first-round action.
Who can play who?
As with last season, there is no seeding for this year’s draw, although as usual the 72 teams in the first round will be split into north and south sections to avoid excess travel.
When is the first round being played?
The first round of the Carabao Cup is due to be played on Saturday, September 5, although this is also an international weekend – so some games may be rearranged.
When do the Premier League sides enter the competition?
All Premier League sides not involved in European competition in 2020/21 – so every team except Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Leicester, Tottenham and Arsenal – will enter in round two.
