Under-18s discover Premier League Cup opponents

Wolves will face Arsenal, Blackburn Rovers and Chelsea in the 2019/20 Under-18 Premier League Cup.

Steve Davis’ side, who have got off to the perfect start in the league with a 3-0 win against Stoke City on the opening day before a 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Saturday, will face each of three teams once in a group stage format.

The competition divides 24 teams – 12 from U18 Premier League North, including Wolves, and 12 from the South – into six four-team groups, each including two clubs from the northern division and two U18 Premier League South sides.

The team which finishes top in each of the groups will then be joined in the quarter-finals by the two best placed runners-up, before a semi-final and final decide the 2019/20 U18 Premier League Cup champions.

Wolves under-18s have been drawn in Group A of the tournament and will face Blackburn and Chelsea away, while their game against Arsenal will be played at the Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground sponsored by Fosun International. Fixture dates and times will be announced in due course.
