EFL Trophy

The EFL Trophy has been split into northern and southern sections with invited clubs joining Sky Bet League One and Two Clubs in one of eight groups.

The invited clubs include the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.

The EFL Trophy will officially get underway in Matchday One during week commencing 7 September, and culminating at Wembley Stadium for the Final on Sunday 14 March 2021.

The competition format remains unchanged, however, the title sponsorship with Leasing.com has come to an end so the competition will revert back to the EFL Trophy.
