Non Seeded Northern section, in the most ridiculously named cup ever.

Caraboa is the second most popular energy drink in Thailand.  The draw for the first round of the competition will be held in Bangkok on 16.6.17.

The "EFL" is going to increasingly desperate lengths to make a few pennies.

It's almost as though the League have seen the Against Modern Football movement and thought "Right, how can be take the proverbial out of them some more?"

Don't fancy going to any away fixture at a club who adopt a water buffalo as a mascot.

I don't think I have ever seen that drink for sale but part of me thinks it must have been one of those cheap and nasty energy drinks always piled up in the fridge at the local corner shop.

Why doesn't everybody, like me, ignore the sponsors name and call it the League Cup?  There is no way I am talking to someone about who they've got in the next round of the Caraboa Cup.

Thanks Stu, I wouldn't want to sound ridiculous when talking about the competition with this new name attached to it. Imagine the embarrassment!

The season after next we will be seeded😀

It's the caribou cup for me, most matches will probably take place in the rain dear.

They chose the name as a homage to our pitch when it was a quagmire as carabao were seen grazing there.

Assuming we have to play a seed then there are some good potential ties there:

1. Barnsley
2. Blackburn Rovers
3. Bolton Wanderers
4. Bradford City
5. Burton Albion
6. Derby County
7. Fleetwood Town
8. Leeds United
9. Nottingham Forest
10. Preston North End
11. Rochdale
12. Rotherham United
13. Scunthorpe United
14. Sheffield United
15. Sheffield Wednesday
16. Sunderland
17. Wigan Athletic

So we'll get Burton away

I actually thought this thread was some kind of joke.

Bit of a shame for Walsall. Unseeded in the north whilst Wolves, Villa, Blues and the Baggies are seeded in the South.

Plus Littlewoods, Worthingtons & Carling cup.

I'd suggest that sponsorship hasn't always worked 😀
