    After the announcement of the team reduction, we're pleased to announce that we will continue with 2 cups next season.

    Both cups will follow roughly the same format which will be as follows:

    R1 - Bottom 8 clubs from this season. Basically the Championship minus Leicester City, Bournemouth, Manchester United, Sheffield United, Aston Villa & Leeds United

    R2 - The 4 winners from R1 plus the remaining 6 Championship sides plus the 6 non-European Premiership sides = 16 teams = 8 winners

    R3 - The 8 European sides plus the 8 R2 winners = Last 16

    R4 - QF
    R5 - SF
    R6 - F

    The only differences are that the League cup will have a 2 leg semi final whilst the FA Cup will have replays up to the QF stage
