With the 2020/21 Carabao Cup First Round Draw completed on Tuesday morning, we take a look in full, at which team got who.
Excited supporters were able to tune into Sky Sports News or live stream on skysports.com and Sky Sports app to watch round one draw live from 10am.
70 of the 72 teams from the Championship, League One and League Two will be in the draw. Relegated Bournemouth and Watford receive a bye into the second round, while Barrow and Harrogate Town, who are newly promoted from the National League, will take part in the competition for the first time in their history.
Like last season, there was no seeding for this year’s draw, although as usual the 72 teams in the first round will be split into north and south sections to avoid excess travel.
The first round of the Carabao Cup is due to be played on Saturday the 5th of September, although this is also an international weekend – so some games may be rearranged.
All Premier League sides not involved in European competition in the upcoming season – so every team except Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Leicester, Tottenham and Arsenal – will enter in the second round.
The only change for the shortened more packed season is that the two-legged semi-finals have now been replaced with one-off games.

Fans gave their reaction after seeing the Carabao Cup First Round Draw in full…
Pick of the #CarabaoCup Draw is probably Newport County v Swansea City. Other than that, it’s a pretty drab draw.

Newport County and Swansea City drawn together in the #CarabaoCup. Sickener for fans who won’t be able to attend.

The Carabao Cup draw isn’t the same when it’s almost certain we won’t be able to be there ? #CarabaoCup
