Brentford B will compete in the 2022/23 Premier League Cup this season offering another competitive edge to the side’s fixture programme.

The Premier League Cup is a competition designed for sides at Under-21 level to compete in and it runs over the course of the season with 32 teams placed into groups of four before the tournament progresses onto knockout stages. Each side is allowed five over-age outfield players and one over-age goalkeeper.

Last year West Bromwich Albion won the tournament as they faced Wolverhampton Wanderers in the final. The match was level at 2-2 after extra-time before the Baggies clinched the trophy following a penalty shootout.

Brentford have been placed in Group D alongside Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers and Peterborough United and the side will get their campaign under way on Tuesday 13 September away at Blackburn in a 7pm kick-off.
