One night in Bangkok
Monday, 12th Jun 2017 19:14
or an afternoon at least. 2017-18 will become that bit more real on Friday when the first round of the League Cup will take place, and the Football League are going all the way to Bangkok to celebrate.
The competition is now known as the Carabao Cup and we can only assume that there's some sort of Thailand tie in which is prompting the draw being done in the Far East.
It's expected that Dale will be one of the seeded teams again, meaning a guaranteed draw against a side from League 2 or the lower echelons of League One. The draw will be regionalised as well.
Our possible opponents are: 18 Accrington Stanley, 19 Blackpool, 20 Bury, 21 Carlisle United, 22 Chesterfield, 23 Coventry City, 24 Crewe Alexandra, 25 Doncaster Rovers, 26 Grimsby Town, 27 Lincoln City, 28 Mansfield Town, 29 Morecambe, 30 Notts County, 31 Oldham Athletic, 32 Port Vale, 33 Shrewsbury Town, 34 Walsall.
The draw will be streamed live on Facebook from around 1pm on Friday.
