About the Premier League Cup

The Premier League Cup was introduced in 2013/14 to enhance the competitiveness of the Professional Development Phase calendar with knockout football alongside the regular league campaign.

The competition is in the UEFA Champions League-style with 32 clubs in the main group stage from Premier League 2 as well as the Professional Development League.

Like Premier League 2, it is contested between Under-21 teams, with each side allowed five over-age outfield players and one over-age goalkeeper.
