The 2019/20 Carabao Cup First Round draw will take place at 7pm on Thursday 20th June.

Just hours after Millwall's Sky Bet Championship fixtures for the new campaign are released, The Lions will discover their Cup fate as the draw is made live from Morrisons supermarket in Colindale.

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 it 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.
