History

The competition was created in 2013 as the U21 Premier League Cup, an U21 equivalent of the FA Youth Cup [1] [2] (an U18 competition competed for since 1952), albeit being run by the Premier League instead of The FA. In 2016 the age range of the competition was raised to Under-23s, and the competition was renamed as simply the Premier League Cup.
