City assigned ball number three

City will be represented by ball number three in this afternoon’s Carabao Cup draw (September 6th).

Rounds Two and Three of the competition will take place live on Sky Sports at 2pm, hosted by David Garrido and conducted by Phil Babb.

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

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 and Wolverhampton Wanderers alongside Sky Bet Championship sides Bournemouth and Watford. 

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 - Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

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. 

Round Two is due to be played in the midweek of September 15th/16th, with Round Three due to be played the following week (22nd/23rd September).
