Town Ball 16 in Carabao Cup Draw
Monday, 17th Aug 2020 16:44
The Blues are ball number 16 in the Carabao Cup draw, which takes place tomorrow at 10am live on Sky Sports News.
Round one fixtures are set to be played on Saturday 5th September, although with that weekend in the international window clubs are able to mutually agree an earlier alternative date with Saturday 29th August having been mooted.
As in the previous two seasons, the round one draw is set to be divided into northern and southern sections and unseeded. It is therefore possible that the Blues could draw Norwich City.
Given the reduced length of the season, this year’s semi-finals will be single ties rather than two-legged affairs.
The first four rounds are scheduled to take place on consecutive weeks: 5th September, 15th/16th September, 22nd/23rd September, 29th/30th September.
Round five will be played on 22nd/23rd December with the semi-final on 5th/6th January and final on 28th February.
Premier League sides enter the Carabao Cup in round two or round three if competing in European competitions.
The EFL's 2020/21 league fixtures will be announced at 9am on Friday when they will be available on TWTD.

Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
