TONIGHT AT CCS: U21 PL CUP VS GILLINGHAM
Come down and watch our Future City Stars in action - free entry for all at Cardiff City Stadium
Entering into the second season of this competition in the second round of qualifying, Nilton Terroso's men will face the Gulls only having tasted defeat once this season.
The U21 Premier League Cup was introduced at the start of last season and could see the likes of Manchester United or Arsenal take on Cardiff City's young stars in future rounds. They were knocked out of the inaugural competition last season by eventual winners Chelsea.
All games will be played at the home sides’ stadium with the Bluebirds entering in Qualifying Round 2 as a Category 2 status Academy.
The one-off fixtures in the competition will be played on a regional basis until the Round of 16, whereupon the draw becomes national. The final will be played over two legs home and away at the main stadia of both teams.
Regional qualifiers will be held to progress to the round of 32, at which stage Category 1 academies will enter the competition.
