Carabao Cup draw on Friday

12 June 2017

The draw for the first round of the 2017/18 Carabao Cup will take place on Friday 16 June at 1.00pm and be streamed live from Bangkok, Thailand.

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 EFL Cup’s title sponsor, Carabao Energy Drink.

Fans can watch the draw unfold live on various platforms, including the EFL’s new live streaming platform, iFollow, on Facebook via the Carabao Cup and Carabao UK pages and SkySports.com.

Nearly 1.5 million people attended matches in the EFL Cup last season as the competition recorded record breaking attendances.

There will be 70 EFL clubs in the draw with matches scheduled to take place week commencing 7 August.

The draw is regionalised to minimise travelling time for supporters in the first round with seeding decided by 2016/17 league standings.
