Ipswich Town will find out their first competitive fixtures of the 2020/21 season today - here’s how you can follow the Carabao Cup and EFL Trophy draws.

CARABAO CUP

The draw for the first round of the EFL Cup will be made on Sky Sports News at 10am.

It will, as always, be regionalised. However, this year, it will be unseeded. That’s a bonus for Ipswich because they were set to lose their seeding following an 11th place finish in League One.

The Blues could end up facing anyone from the south in tiers two to four, including Norwich.

Town are ball number 16 in the southern section.

There are 34 clubs in Town’s side of the draw with Brentford, QPR, Reading, Cardiff, Millwall and Swansea all possible opponents, as well as the recently relegated from the Premier League Canaries.

The fixtures are set to be played on Saturday, September 5 - but could be moved to Saturday, August 29 because of the international break.
