PL Cup Draw

Wolves have been drawn in Group C of the PL Cup.

Scott Sellars side join Norwich City, AFC Bournemouth or Wigan Athletic and Bury or Bristol Rovers in the Group Stage of the competition.

From 2016/17 the Premier League Cup replaced the Under-21 Premier League Cup, which was introduced in 2013/14 to enhance the competitiveness of the Professional Development Phase calendar with knockout football alongside the regular league campaign.

The Group Stage of the Under-23 competition will consist of 32 teams, split into eight groups of four. Clubs play each other home and away in the groups, with the top two teams in each group advancing to the knockout stage. All knockout ties are one-off matches. If they’re level after 90 minutes, they’re decided by extra-time and then penalties if required.
