2019/20 Carabao Cup Round One draw details

4 Hours ago

Often unique and unpredictable, the Carabao Cup continues to fly the competition’s flag across the globe as teams discover their fate in draws held worldwide. From Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City, the 2019/20 Round One draw now stops at a popular London supermarket chain.

Live from Morrisons, Colindale at 7pm on Thursday 20 June, the draw will take place within a short distance from Wembley Stadium – the home of the Carabao Cup Final. Conducted by two former EFL Cup winners, supporters will be able to engage with the competition as they go about their daily routine… A true modern-day supermarket sweep!

Drawing the 70 balls from the hat will be footballing legend, John Barnes and Arsenal fan favourite, Ray Parlour as they select the 35 fixtures for Round One, which includes EFL Clubs from Carlisle all the way down to Plymouth and features EFL Cup debutants Salford City.

Fans will be able to watch the draw live in store and also tune in to the Carabao Cup Facebook page, with live text updates on EFL Twitter and EFL.com.

John Barnes commented: “I’m delighted to be involved in the Carabao Cup Round One draw this season, it’s a fantastic competition and Round One is always a great occasion for fans of EFL Clubs. They get an early glimpse of their summer signings and can be a good opportunity for families to get together and watch their local team thanks to how accessible the Cup is.”

On the Carabao Cup, Ray Parlour said: “I always enjoy watching the Carabao Cup so it’s great to be involved in the Round One draw. Hosting the draw in a supermarket as fans go about their daily lives provides them with a great opportunity to engage with the competition and I can’t wait to see who will be crowned Carabao Cup winners this season.”   

The 2018/19 Carabao Cup competition culminated in the showpiece final held at Wembley Stadium in February. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City battled with Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea in a tight contest, in which Raheem Sterling scored the decisive penalty to see City crowned winners for a second consecutive season.

70 EFL Clubs will feature in the Round One draw which will see teams drawn in Northern and Southern sections, as in 2018.

Matches are scheduled to take place week commencing 12 August.

Huddersfield Town will be included, while fellow Championship newcomers Cardiff City and Fulham join the competition in Round Two alongside the Premier League Clubs that are not competing in Europe.

No wonder fans regard this competition as tinpot and a waste of time.


Yeah, I'm sure we're joyless or whatever but this trophy brings a place in Europe, treat the thing and the teams in it properly.

Anyone else have to google where Colindale is?

No Mate, exiled there during the week. Only 30 minutes on the northern line to my office in Euston but much cheaper rent and beats commuting everyday.  I am only 10 minutes walk from Morrisons and I didn't even know it was happening until I read this thread today. Then again I do all my shopping in Asda next door:D

AFC Wimbledon v MK Dons is going to be a friendly affair..:ph34r:

I hope MK Dons stuff them.

I understand the history but Wimbledon come across as incredibly petty with their one-sided beef.

Maybe could've posted this in the 'unpopular opinions' thread too.

I think the unpopular opinions thread is exactly where this needs to be.

Imagine how we’d feel if we suddenly got up rooted and became the Devonshire Foxes. 

Then set up our own Phoenix club, when we played them it would be more than a little petty.
