    2020 League Cup

    Seems to be a slight change of format this year - 9 First Division teams (Rovers II aren't in) plus 3 non-league sides make up the first round, with the 6 winners joining the 12 Premier Division sides in the next round. No mention of regional pools until the QF stage any more, though the first round ties are regionalised.

    "Drogheda v UCD the standout tie in EA Sports Cup" is the headline on RTÉ, which is suitably underwhelming I think!

    Monday, 9 March
    Cabinteely v Crumlin United
    Drogheda United v UCD

    Tuesday, 10 March
    Galway United v Athlone Town
    Longford Town v Cockhill Celtic
    UCC v Cobh Ramblers
    Wexford v Bray Wanderers

    Not terribly outspoken, and yet so much so.

    Did anyone get the actual draw sequence, as opposed to the list of fixtures by date?

    That would be interesting as it looks to be an orchestrated list of fixtures than a traditional draw.

    Its a Michael Mouse trophy it adds to a good league season but wouldn’t make up for a bad one like the FAI cup would.

    The early rounds have always been regional.

    We beat Dundalk in pre-season therefore we are the best team in Ireland, that's enough for me.
    Between the stripes - Longford Town FC (unofficial) fans site.

    They played in it in 2015, beating Wexford and Cobh before losing to Dundalk.

    Didnt hear a peep out of them. We were supposed to play Cockhill Celtic but tbh if non league clubs are excluded from FAI Cup cant see league cup going ahead tbh.
