Carabao Cup final online

The 2021-22 Carabao Cup began on July 31 and will end on February 27. With the UK’s top teams participating, it should be no surprise that there’s huge interest of streaming the tournament online. Below, we’ll walk you through the process and explain how to stream the Carabao Cup live, even if you’re traveling abroad.

You should note that we’ll only be recommending official Carabao Cup broadcasters. While unlicensed streams are almost inevitable for major sporting events, they come with a couple of significant disadvantages. First, the video is often low-quality and laggy. This would be bad enough, but there’s also a good chance the stream will be taken offline by copyright holders mid-match. With so many legitimate ways to watch, there’s no reason to use unauthorized streams.

Carabao Cup matches will only be shown on geo-blocked platforms. If you’re abroad and want to watch on your usual streaming services, you’ll need a VPN.

How to stream the Carabao Cup online abroad with a VPN

It’s actually very simple to access geo-restricted content abroad with a VPN. Just follow the steps below and you’ll be streaming the Carabao Cup in no time.

Here’s how to watch the Carabao Cup online from anywhere:

  1. Start by choosing the right VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN but Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two excellent alternatives.
  2. Download and install the VPN app. There will be a few different versions so make sure you get the right version for your device.
  3. Decide which of the services below you’d like to use and connect to a server in the relevant location. For example, you’ll use a British server to unblock Sky Go or a US server for ESPN.
  4. Try using your chosen service. Content should load almost immediately, but if it doesn’t, clear your browser’s cache and cookies, then reload the page.

Since the Carabao Cup tournament will be broadcast live, it’s important to test your VPN in advance. This way, you won’t have to worry about missing anything and will still have time to contact your VPN’s customer support team should you run into any issues.

How to watch the Carabao Cup online

Luckily, you don’t have to be in the UK to watch the Carabao Cup online. In fact, this year’s event will be shown in more than 20 different countries. Take a look below to find an official EFL broadcaster in your region:

As you might expect, it’s very simple to watch the Carabao Cup in the UK. Existing Sky TV customers can log in and stream the game for free on Sky Go, and those who don’t have cable TV (or are with a different provider) can simply watch on Now TV instead.

You should note that while Now TV has a two-week free trial, this doesn’t give you access to Sky Sports. Instead, you’ll have to pay for a Sky Sports Pass: these cost £9.99 per day but are far less expensive than signing up for Sky Sports directly. Also, if you’d like to watch sports regularly, Now TV offers discounts on longer subscriptions, with a monthly pass costing £33.99.

Sky Go and Now TV are both geo-restricted. This means you’ll have to either be in the UK or using a British VPN server to use them. NordVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can use it to stream the Carabao Cup risk-free. If you’re not impressed, just cancel to get your money back.


US flag - flag of the USA

In the US, ESPN+ will be showing the EFL live. This costs $6.99 USD per month and unfortunately doesn’t offer a free trial anymore. On the plus side, it does come as part of a bundle, with Disney+ and Hulu thrown in for $13.99 per month. Additionally, as part of its new ESPN+Mas offering, it’ll provide full Spanish-language coverage for hundreds of La Liga, Carabao Cup, and Bundesliga fixtures.

ESPN+ is usually not available outside of the US. If you’d like to use it from abroad, you’ll have to connect to one of your VPN’s American servers first.


canada flag

DAZN is the only platform showing the Carabao Cup in Canada. This service costs $20 CAD per month or $150 annually, but it also offers a one-month free trial. As such, it’s possible to watch part of the Carabao Cup for free simply by canceling your subscription before the trial ends.

It’s worth mentioning that most regional DAZN sites have stricter geo-restriction measures than many rivals. However, the Canadian version doesn’t, and can easily be accessed from abroad using a Canadian VPN server. Note that you’ll need a Canadian address if you choose to sign up using a credit card.


australia flag

beIN Sports and Kayo will both be showing the Carabao Cup in Australia. beIN costs $19.99 AUD per month (annual passes are available for $199.99) and comes with a two-week free trial, whereas Kayo is $25, with a one-month trial.

It’s difficult to sign up for beIN Sports from abroad since it only accepts Visa and Mastercard payments, and checks to see if your card is linked to an Australian address. However, if you usually live in Australia, you can still register from abroad. Remember: you’ll need to connect to an Australian VPN server to bypass geo-restrictions.

Other locations

The Carabao Cup will be shown in far too many regions to cover individually above, so don’t worry if your country wasn’t mentioned. If this is the case, you can find local, fully-licensed sources in your area on the English Football League’s international broadcasters page.
