EFL programmes

  • Match day programme will no longer be compulsory
League Cup

  • Will not go to extra time, straight to a penalty shootout, except the final.
  • ABBA scrapped.
  • VAR will be in use at EPL grounded.
Checkatrade:

  • EFL clubs will now be able to include players who are on loan at National League clubs.
  • Category One teams who take part will only be allowed to name two players who are over the age of 21 and have played more than 40 first-team games.

That a real shame about the programs. I hope most club continue to do one, even it’s it a much slimed down cheaper option. Collecting one from each ground on the 92 club so it’s going to really balls that up

What are the economics of the OUFC programme? What does it cost to produce and is this covered by sales and advertising?

Programmes generally never sell at a profit and usually lucky if they break even.

I’d hope though OUFC still do a programme.

Glad to see ABBA scraped.

Extra time being scraped actually benefits lower league clubs as they have more chance of winning a shootout than playing an extra 30 minutes against a bigger club.

The tinpot trophy is still a joke as long as premier league clubs are allowed to take part. I actually hope 2 u21 teams get to the final so it proves a point as I can see a very low crowd to watch a load of kids playing.

What was the issue with the ABBA concept - I understood it was going to solve everything?
Also disappointed that seeding has been removed from 2nd round of League cup, as that at least gave everyone a big opponent to face once you were through the first round - guess it is whether the opportunity for a longer stay in the competition through facing a string of lower clubs is better than getting a 'bigger' tie in round two, or whether it will become a second string affair for lower clubs as well?

At least by reverting to the old system it’ll be easier for fans to spot when The Winner Takes It All.
