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 20th 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.
Seventy 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 12th 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.
