History


The first edition of the EFL Cup was held in 1960-61 as the Football League Cup. It was introduced as a reaction to the growing popularity of European football and to apply power over the FA.

The League Cup took advantage of the roll-out of floodlights at many English football stadiums, which allowed the matches to be played midweek in the evening.

The winners of the EFL Cup qualify for a place in the UEFA Europa League, unless the winner qualifies for Europe through their Premier League position.
