The Carabao Cup final on April 25 could now be played in front of spectators after the EFL pushed for the event to be included in a schedule of test events for the return of fans.

The first major trophy of the English domestic season, which will be contested by Manchester City and Tottenham, was initially excluded from the list of pilot events, but the league’s chairman Rick Parry has campaigned for its inclusion.
