Carabao Cup Second and Third Round draws to take place on Sunday

5 September 2020

The Carabao Cup Round Two and Three draws will take place on Sunday 6th September live on Sky Sports.

Hosted by David Garrido, the draws will be conducted by former Liverpool defender and 1995 EFL Cup winner Phil Babb, following the Round One Carabao Cup tie between Brentford and Wycombe Wanderers.  

The Round Two draw is unseeded and will remain regionalised with northern and southern sections. 

Upon its conclusion, the Round Three draw will then take place with each tie given a number in the order that they came out in the Round Two draw - they will then be subject to another unseeded draw on an either/or basis, alongside the seven Premier League Clubs competing in Europe who enter at this stage.

Having the draws conducted together will enable the EFL, Clubs and broadcasters to plan with additional clarity and certainty over a busy period of fixtures whilst supporters are unable to attend fixtures. 

Joining the Carabao Cup at the Round Two stage are the 13 Premier League Clubs that are not competing in Europe in the 2020/21 season, including Everton, West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers alongside Sky Bet Championship sides AFC Bournemouth and Watford. The remaining clubs - Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal - will join in Round Three.
