The opening Johnstone's Paint Trophy draw of the season will take place on Saturday 16 August 2014.
As in previous seasons, the first round will see clubs divided into regional groupings with 16 clubs being awarded byes into Round Two (details at the bottom of the article).
New for this season, the Football League is to trial the use of Vanishing Spray, as used by match officials at the recent World Cup in Brazil, in this season’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
"It will also give us the ability to gauge the opinions of players, managers, referees and fans.”
Football League Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: “Having seen it used in the recent World Cup, the introduction of Vanishing Spray into the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy will give us the opportunity to observe its use in domestic football so that we can better understand its effect on the flow of the game.
The League will not be using Vanishing Spray in any matches played in the Sky Bet Football League or Capital One Cup during 2014/15, but will consider its introduction at the end of the current campaign.
