The EFL League Cup takes place on Sunday, 26th February 2017 between Southampton and Manchester United.
If you live in a country where the final isn’t shown or it’s on a TV station that you don’t have a subscription for then you could be left out in the cold and miss all the exciting football action.
The good news is there is a really easy way to watch the EFL League Cup final from any country in the world and in this guide I’m going to show you the simple steps you can take to watch the Final and you’ll be surprised it requires very little effort.
All you’re going to need is to sign up for a service called a VPN and I’ll explain more in the guide below. So what are you waiting for? Let’s find out what you’ll need.
How to watch the EFL cup final 2017 in any country
The EFL League Cup final is being shown online on US based streaming website Fubo.tv.
If you visit the Fubo.tv website from outside the US then you’ll be blocked from viewing and instead of watching the EFL cup final you’ll either not be able to select the match live stream or you’ll be blocked with a message similar to the following.
The reason you’re blocked from viewing is because Fubo.tv knows you’re outside the US.
To bypass this block you’ll need to get yourself a VPN.
A VPN is a service that protects your privacy online and one of the features of this is you can disguise your location and appear somewhere else.
By using a VPN to appear in the United States you can bypass the block on Fubo.tv and watch the EPL League Cup final 2017 from any country in the world.
Where to get a VPN
If you search Google for the term VPN then you’ll be faced with a wall of options that goes on for pages.
Not all VPN services are suitable for streaming events such as the EPL League Cup 2017 final because they’re just too slow and if you try use one of them then you’ll end up with buffering ruining your enjoyment of the match.
I’ve been testing a selection of VPN services to find out which are the best for streaming the EPL League Cup final.
In my tests I found IPVanish to be the best because they were the fastest but any of the following three will be suitable, so just pick one and sign up.
All you need to do is click on one of the names above to visit the provider’s website and sign-up.
Once you’ve signed up continue reading below where I’ll show you how to use your new VPN service with Fubo.tv to stream the EPL League Cup final 2017 in any country in the world.
