Alarm clocks ready! EFL Cup draw time draws ridicule from fans

ShareClose Comments
The third-round draw will take place in the wee hours of Thursday morning for UK supporters, and even the clubs are not too happy about it!

Football fans are known as being a loyal bunch, but most seem to draw the line at setting their alarms for 4:15 in the morning to find out who their team will play in the League Cup!

New sponsors Carabao have come in for a rough time on social media since announcing the draw would take place in the early hours of British Summer Time in China. 

Carabao justified the decision by explaining that it will help the competition's appeal in the massive Asian market, but that excuse has not gone down entirely well with those not prepared to get up in the wee hours to see if Arsenal get Burnley or Burton in the next round.

And as the moment itself approaches, even participating clubs have joined in the fun as they prepare for a long wait.
