Capital one cup 1st round bye?

by RoyalinBracknell » 14 Jun 2013 18:42

Sorry if this has been mentioned before. I was just looking through the seedings for the Capital One Cup draw on Monday and noticed neither Reading or Wigan appeared - I presume we've got a bye to the 2nd round? I guess this is because us and Wigan were the two 'best placed' sides from those in the Football League this season, and presumably they need to leave two teams out to have a certain number taking part in the 2nd round. (Or maybe it's something to do with Wigan being in Europe? Indeed I think the 2nd round takes place in a European midweek so presumably Wigan won't be entering even at that stage!)

At least we achieved something last season I guess! It probably can't do any harm to have an early midweek off.

It was announced on the 23rd May m8.

It has been confirmed that the Royals will enter the 2013/14 Capital One Cup at the second round stage.

This means the club will not take part in round one ties, set to take place on 6th/7th August and will instead enter at round two, with those ties to be played on 27/28 August.

The round one draw for the Capital One Cup will be released on Monday 17th June 2013 and will be both seeded based on last season’s league tables, and also regionalised, consisting of 70 Football League clubs. The two highest placed relegated clubs from the Premier League have been seeded though to round 2 (Reading) and round 3 (Wigan Athletic).

There won't be any midweek games due to internationals on August 14th. We've had all the dates for when there will be league fixtures for a while now. http://www.readingfc.co.uk/documents/fi ... 832469.pdf




As for byes in the cup, what happens every year is they take out the top 22 teams (I.e 20PL & top 2 Champ). The 7 in Europe go straight to R3 and the other 15 go into R2. Wasn't the case last time we went down because there was eight teams in Europe (Intertoto cup still existed) and hence the numbers worked for all championship clubs to enter in R1.

So how does that mean QPR are in R1?

Probably because they finished bottom, therefore being the worst placed out of the relegated clubs.

They take the 20 current Premier League teams out (i.e. those in that league next season) and the 'top 2 Champ teams' which is attributed to the 2 highest placed teams the previous season (i.e. 18th and 19th in the Premier League.)

Shame...I always look forward to a decent away day on first round evening. Good opportunity to get to grounds that we would not otherwise visit (Dagenham etc)

This may be a really silly question and feel free to delete the thread when answered, but it's been bugging me for a while...

Why are ourselves and Wigan not in the first round of the COC but QPR are?

Tarr.

All down to numbers. 3 go up and 3 come down.

I THINK. Actually I don't know myself!

Since 1996–97, teams involved in European competition during the season have received a bye to the third round; the remaining Premier League teams enter at the second round, and the remaining Football League teams enter at the first round.[6] If the number of byes causes an odd number of teams to enter a round, another team may be given a bye (usually the highest-placed team of those relegated from the Premier League the previous season) or a preliminary round may be played between the two teams promoted from the Football Conference the previous season (or, if only one team is promoted, that team would play against the lowest-placed team not to be relegated from the Football League the previous season); preliminary rounds have only been necessary in the 2002–03 and 2011–12 competitions.[6][7] Up to 1995–96, all teams were involved by the second round, although some received byes to that stage.[6]

Round 1: 35 matches - 70 lowest ranked teams from last season not in Premier League or Europe this season (24 League 2, 24 League 1, 22 Championship)

Round 2: 25 matches - 35 Round 1 winners + all other teams not in Europe (Reading + 14 Premier)

Round 3: 16 matches - 25 Round 2 winners + 7 teams in Europe (Wigan + 6 Premier)
