The FA cup is open to all registered clubs in England and Wales. This is a second competition that is ope to only those i the top 4 tiers (sometimes called, the football league clubs). It started in the 60s, at least in part, to provide midweek games at stadiums that had recently started installing expensive floodlights that had to be paid for. It's never really had much prestige, but the last 15 years or so it has been considered almost an annoyance by most prem sides.What the F is the Carabao Cup, and why should I care? I thought I knew my competitions fairly well, but WTF is this? Isn't this another FA Cup? Sorry if I sound a little thick, but I really found this tournament to be something I had never heard before.
