CARABAO CUP: City to host Championship side Ipswich Town in round one

Grecians to host Championship side

15 June 2018

Exeter City will host Championship side Ipswich Town in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

The match is scheduled to take place on the week commencing Monday, August 13. The exact date, fixture time and ticket details for the game will be released in due course once the television games have been selected.

Steve McManaman, Louis Saha and Dennis Wise made the first round draw in Vietnam's largest city, Ho Chi Minh City this morning.

There are changes to the format of the competition this season, as extra-time has been removed from every round, apart from the Final. Matches tied at 90 minutes go straight to a penalty shoot-out. The 2019 Final will feature extra time and penalties if required. 
 
The format of penalties will revert to the traditional format, as opposed to the recently trialled ABBA formula, which will no longer feature in EFL competitions.

Admission prices and futher details will be released in due course.
