The English League Cup (EFL Cup) will be re-branded as the Carabao and the first round draw will take place in Bangkok. Carabao is a Thai energy drink which also sponsors Chelsea and Reading.

70 teams from the Championship, League One and League Two will know each other’s opponent on Friday.

"The newly named Carabao Cup offers a significant opportunity for the Thai brand to engage with football fans via its association with one of the biggest football competitions in the country, and Carabao plans to bring this partnership to life at every opportunity for customers and consumers.”

Round one of the Carabao Cup will take place immediately after the season openers, with midweek slots on week commencing Monday, August 7. The 2018 final is scheduled for Sunday, February 25.

Big move for Carabao as they are one of the less recognised energy drink brands.

Aren't they the one who put their logo on the training kits of a few team? Like Chelsea for example. Impressive anyway.

@quikzyyy Actually, made a research as for why it was called that. Found the answer to be pretty interesting. Here the link to the wikipedia article for those who are interested: Mickey Mouse Cup
