This season’s Carabao Cup Final has been rescheduled and will now take place on Sunday 25 April 2021, with a 4pm kick-off. The EFL announced today that it is the objective of the League to stage the Final with as many supporters in attendance as possible. The decision has therefore been taken to move the Final from its original date of Sunday 28 February 2021 to later in the year.

The number of fans permitted will be dependent on Government guidance in place at the time. It is hoped that moving the date to later in the year will give clubs and their fans the best opportunity to attend in person.

The competition is set to continue this week, with the Quarter Finals to be played across Tuesday 22 December and Wednesday 23 December, with all four games live on Sky Sports. Brentford are in one of those Quarter Finals. The Bees face Newcastle United tomorrow, Tuesday, in a match that will kick-off at 5.30pm.
