English League Cup draw to be made in Bangkok on Friday

Manchester United lifted the League Cup trophy in February.

The first round draw for next season's Carabao Cup will be made in Bangkok, Thailand, on Friday.

Newly relegated Sunderland will be one of 70 clubs in the first round draw of the League Cup with Hull and Middlesbrough among those joining the competition in round two.

Thai energy drinks brand Carabao signed an £18 million, three-year deal with the EFL to become the competition's title sponsor earlier this year.

The first-round draw will be seeded and regionalised to reduce travelling time for supporters.

This year's final saw Manchester United beat Southampton 3-2 at Wembley in February.
