The Carabao Cup first round draw will be held live from Morrisons (near Wembley) at 7pm, Thursday June 20.
The draw will be conducted by two former EFL Cup winners, John Barnes and Arsenal fan favourite, Ray Parlour as they select the 35 fixtures for Round One, which includes 70 EFL clubs.
Fans will be able to watch the draw live in the Morrisons store and also tune in to the Carabao Cup Facebook page. There will also be live 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.”
John Luck, chief marketing officer of Intercarabao UK added: “We’re delighted to be hosting the Carabao Cup Round One draw later this week with the help of our friends at Morrisons. We sell lots of our great tasting low sugar energy drinks in supermarkets, so we thought why not let football fans watch the draw whilst stocking up on Carabao? Better still, we’re delighted that it means we can continue to keep the Cup as inclusive as possible by giving fans the chance to come along to watch live. We’ve held Carabao Cup Round One draws all across the globe in Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City but it feels very exciting to us to bring it back to the UK this year.”
70 EFL Clubs will feature in the Round One draw which will see teams drawn in Northern and Southern sections, as in 2018 with Championship newcomers Cardiff City and Fulham joining the competition in Round Two alongside the Premier League Clubs that are not competing in Europe.
