When is the Carabao Cup final?

The Carabao Cup final has been moved from February 28 to Sunday April 25, 2021.

The EFL have made the decision in a bid to have as many fans as possible attend the Wembley showdown which will kick off at 4pm.

In a statement, the EFL said: “This season’s Carabao Cup final has been rescheduled and will now take place on Sunday 25 April 2021, with a 4pm kick-off.

“It is the objective of the League to stage the final with as many supporters in attendance as possible.

“And the decision has therefore been taken to move the final from its original date of Sunday February 28, 2021 to later in the year.

“The number of fans permitted will be dependent on Government guidance in place at the time.

“And 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 December 22 and Wednesday December 23, with all four games live on Sky Sports.”
