First Round Carabao Cup Opponents Confirmed

Seasiders To Host Barnsley

15 June 2018

Blackpool have been drawn to face Barnsley in Round One of this season's Carabao Cup.

The tie, to be played week commencing 13 August, will take place at Bloomfield Road. 

The draw for Round One of the 2018/19 Carabao Cup was held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Three former EFL Cup winners took part in the event, held at 10.45am (UK time), with Steve McManaman and Tran Le Anh Thy, General Director of Ngoc Thien Bao (distributer of Carabao in Vietnam) drawing the Northern section, while Louis Saha and the General Secretary of the Vietnam Football Federation, Le Hoai Anh drew the names out in the Southern Section. Dennis Wise took to the stage to give his assessment of the draw.

It is the second successive season that Carabao Cup draws have taken place overseas, with events being staged in Bangkok and Beijing last season as part of the EFL’s continued efforts to build the value of the competition outside the UK.
