Town open up Premier League Cup campaign against the Reds

Town will open up the new look Premier League Cup campaign against Liverpool at Portman Road on Sunday, October 2. Kick-off will be 1pm.

The competition for U23 teams replaces the U21 Premier League Cup, won by West Ham last season, and takes on a UEFA Champions League format.  

There are 32 clubs in the main group stage, replacing the straight knockout in the U21 Premier League Cup, with clubs allowed to field three over-age outfield players and a goalkeeper born before January 1, 1993. 

The tournament is split into eight groups of four clubs, with each team playing their opposing clubs home and away. The top two teams advance to the knockout stage.

The last 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will all be one-off ties. If the ties are level after 90 minutes, they go to extra-time and then penalties if the teams still can't be separated. 

Town have been grouped with West Brom and Huddersfield as well as Liverpool with ticket details for the game against the Anfield club to follow in due course.
