Carabao Cup draw to be streamed live

The draw for the Carabao Cup first round will be streamed live from Bangkok, Thailand on Friday, June 16th at 1pm (UK time).

World Cup winner Emmanuel Petit, Carabao CEO Sathien Setthasit, British Ambassador to Thailand Brian Davidson and EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey will unveil the 35 round one ties from the home of the competition’s title sponsor, Carabao Energy Drink.

Fans will be able to watch the draw unfold live on Facebook via the Carabao Cup and Carabao UK pages, as well as on SkySports.com.

Nearly 1.5m people went to matches in the EFL Cup last season as the competition recorded record breaking attendances.

Victory in the competition’s final will guarantee the winner the first piece of silverware of the domestic season and a place in the Europa League in the following campaign.

A total of 70 EFL Clubs will be in the draw, with matches scheduled to take place week commencing August 7th, with Sunderland included.

Sky Bet Championship newcomers Hull City and Middlesbrough will join the competition in round two, alongside the Premier League clubs that are not competing in Europe.

The draw is also regionalised to minimise travelling time for supporters in the first round with seeding decided by a club’s finishing position in the EFL.

Due to the global appeal of the competition, Carabao, the Thai energy drinks brand, became title sponsor to the competition and official EFL partner earlier this year, with the exclusive partnership
running until 2020. It is anticipated that the relationship with Carabao Energy Drink will increase that further, providing the opportunity to reach new audiences in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
