How to Watch 2020-21 Carabao Cup Matches

With the Second Round of 2020-21 Carabao Cup taking place this midweek, here is how you can watch matches across next few rounds. 

English Football League (EFL) have announced that every match from across Rounds Two, Three and Four will be available to watch across Sky Sports and online, whilst stadium access remains restricted for supporters due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Sky Sports will transmit four matches from across the next three rounds, with Round Two TV picks confirmed as;

Tuesday 15 September 2020 – Burton Albion v Aston Villa (7:45pm BST)

Wednesday 16 September 2020 – West Bromwich Albion v Harrogate Town (6:00pm BST),

Wednesday 16 September 2020 – Everton v Salford City (8:15pm BST)

Thursday 17 September 2020 – Brighton & Hove Albion v Portsmouth (7:45pm BST)

Sky Sports will also exclusively televise all four Quarter-Final ties for the first time in December, alongside the two one legged semi-finals and Grand Final which take place early next year.

Fixtures not selected for live television coverage by Sky Sports across the next three rounds will however be streamed online in the UK only, if involves EFL teams taking on Premier League teams or two Premier League teams playing each other.

Those ties will be available to be streamed on whereas ties which pits two EFL clubs against each other will only be available to view on either iFollow or the club’s own equivalent service if not signed up for the former service.

Every match however will require a match pass which is available at purchase price of £10, including for season ticket holders, because Carabao Cup fixtures aren’t included in the season ticket package agreed by clubs, EFL and Sky during pre-season.

Streaming won’t be made available for international viewers although 29 matches have been made available to overseas broadcast partners.

EFL have however iterated that this plan is only temporary whilst supporters are banned from stadiums or running at reduced capacity in some grounds, although the plan is under regular review and could be withdrawn when appropriate to do so in due course.
