EFL Trophy group to be finalised tomorrow

Town drawn with League One sides Exeter City and Reading...

21 June 2023

The EFL Trophy Group Stage draw will take place live on Sky Sports at 11:30am on Thursday 22 June.

Swindon Town will discover the fourth member of their EFL Trophy group on fixture release day, with 16 Premier League academy teams set to be drawn into the competition's northern and southern sections.

The 16 Invited U21 teams will be placed into their respective Northern and Southern section Groups, with the 48 EFL Clubs having already been placed into pre-determined groups prior to the draw. Consideration has been given to ensure travel time is minimised and recovery time is maximised for players.

As an EFL Club, Town will play two of their three matches at home in the Group Stages, with U21 teams away from home in all three fixtures.

The Robins have been drawn into Group G of the southern section, with League One sides Exeter City and Reading confirmed as two of our three opponents.

Thursday's draw will then see one of Arsenal, Aston Villa, Brighton and Hove Albion, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Tottenham Hotspur or West Ham United's U21 side join us in the group.
