The EFL Trophy Round One Group Stage Draw will take place on Friday 12 July, live on talkSPORT on the Jim White Show at 12.30pm.
Assisted with the Draw by Mike Parry and Perry Groves in the studio, the road to a potential Wembley Final will begin as Clubs look to replicate the success of 2018/19 winners, Portsmouth.
Oxford United boss Karl Robinson and Fulham’s Academy Director Huw Jennings will be in attendance to preview and react to the Group Stage Draw, with both having previous experience in the competition and hopeful of their respective Clubs reaching the latter stages this time round.
The 48 EFL teams have already been placed into Groups in order to minimise travel for EFL Clubs and supporters, with the remaining 16 Invited teams drawn into those on Friday afternoon.
Below are the pre-determined groups featuring EFL Clubs and the Invited Clubs’ draw numbers.
