The 2014–15 Football League Cup (known as the Capital One Cup for sponsorship reasons) was the 55th season of the Football League Cup. It is a knock-out competition for the top 92 football clubs played in English football league system.

The holders were Manchester City who beat Sunderland 3–1 in the previous season's final at Wembley on 2 March 2014.[1] City were eventually knocked out in the fourth round by Newcastle United.

The first round kicked off on 11 August 2014 and consisted of a North/South split with only regional teams drawn against each other.[2]

The first round included newly promoted Luton Town and Cambridge United from League Two. Premier League teams relegated to the Championship usually receive a bye to the second round, however, this season Cardiff City entered the first round. The remaining Championship, League One and League Two clubs contested the first round, with non-European Premier League sides entering in the second and those involved in European competition entering in the third round.

Chelsea won the trophy after a 2–0 win against Tottenham Hotspur in the final.[3]

First round[edit]

The draw for the first round took place on 17 June 2014 at 10:00 BST. Ties were played during the week commencing 11 August 2014.

The 24 teams of League Two, the 24 teams of League One, and 22 teams from the Championship (70 teams altogether) entered in this round. The two Championship teams exempted from this round were Norwich City and Fulham, the two highest-finishing relegated teams from the 2013–14 Premier League; Cardiff City were also relegated, however they were not given a bye since they finished last. The draw was as follows:[4]
