Football Travel Guide Football League Cup / Carling Cup

The Football League Cup, currently the Carling Cup, has had many names over the years from the 'Milk Cup' to the 'Coca Cola Cup' but its pre sponsor name was the most accurate definition of the competition - simply the Football League Cup.

Whether you are following your team home or away in the Carling Cup you will find all the hotel, flights and travel information you need through the Football Travel Guide.

What's at stake?

Although the Football League Cup lacks some of the glamour of the F A Cup, there is still plenty of opportunities for a giant killing, a trip to Wembley, winning the first trohpy of the season and winning a place in Europe the following season.

The Cup is a straight knock out competition for all of the 92 football league clubs. The final is usually held at Wembley Stadium in February.

Sadly for them, as has happened to a number of former winners of this mid season Cup competition, their league form trailed off in the 2nd half of the of the season and they were relegated from the Premier League, although they did qualify for the UEFA Europa League.
