The draw will be released at 10am on Tuesday 16th June 2015, a day before the 2015/16 league fixtures are revealed by the Football League.

First Round ties are scheduled to be contested on the week commencing 10th August 2015.

The 24 teams of League Two, the 24 teams of League One, and 22 teams from the Championship (70 teams altogether) will enter in the first round.

Derby County, Bournemouth and Sheffield United were the only clubs from the Football League to progress to the Quarter-Finals last season, with the Blades progressing to the Semi-Finals where they lost to Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 on aggregate.

Shrewsbury Town nearly caused an upset by nearly defeating eventual champions Chelsea in the fourth round, when the League Two pushed the Premier League outfit all the way to the last minute but unfortunately lost 2-1.
