The League Cup will be known as the Capital One Cup from the start of the new season under a four-year sponsorship agreement with the credit card company, the Football League has announced.

Liverpool won the competition - then called the Carling Cup - in the season just concluded, beating Cardiff 3-2 on penalties at Wembley in February.

The value of the new sponsorship deal was not disclosed.
