The draw for the first round of the Capital One Cup 2014-15 took place earlier today, and Tranmere Rovers have been paired with Nottingham Forest.
The game will take place in the week commencing August 11th, at Prenton Park as we have been given home advantage against the Championship side who were pushing for promotion last season via the play offs, so it's set to be a tough encounter for us, and a good test for manager Rob Edward's new team and new Tranmere.
To open our cup competition this season, the club are also offering entry to junior's for just £1 following a joint League and Sponsor initiative.
Two first round ties will be selected for TV viewing by Sky Sports and those games will take place on Monday August 11th and Wednesday August 13th, and both will kick off at 7.45pm.
Concrete date, kick off and ticket information will all follow in due course, as will details of the Junior initiative and information on how to redeem that price.
Jaidev Janardana, chief marketing officer at the sponsor's of the competition said of the Junior initiative.
'We wanted to make round one as family friendly as possible and we hope our great offer will encourage parents across the UK to treat the whole family to a host of great games, and, no doubt, goals galore.'
