2005–06 Football League Cup - First Round

First Round

The 72 Football League clubs compete from the First Round. Each section is divided equally into a pot of seeded clubs and a pot of unseeded clubs. Clubs' rankings depend upon their finishing position in the 2004–05 season. Therefore, the clubs relegated from the Premier League in 2005, Norwich City, Crystal Palace and Southampton, were the top seeds, and the clubs newly-promoted to the Football League, Barnet and Carlisle United, were bottom seeds.

  • On 28 June 2005 seeded clubs and unseeded clubs were paired off to create the first round draw.
  • Matches occurred on 22, 23 and 24 August 2005.
  • Extra time played when the scores were level after 90 minutes.
  • A penalty shoot-out took place if the scores were level after extra time.

Famous quotes containing the word round:

    I can entertain the proposition that life is a metaphor for boxing—for one of those bouts that go on and on, round following round, jabs, missed punches, clinches, nothing determined, again the bell and again and you and your opponent so evenly matched it’s impossible not to see that your opponent is you.... Life is like boxing in many unsettling respects. But boxing is only like boxing.
    Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)
