About Swansea City

Swansea City Association Football Club is a professional football club based in Swansea, Wales, which plays in the Championship, the second tier of English football. Swansea has played their home games at Swansea.com Stadium (previously known as Liberty Stadium) since 2005, having previously played at Vetch Field since the club was founded.

The club was founded in 1912 as Swansea Town and entered the Southern League, winning the Welsh Cup in their debut season. They were admitted to the Football League in 1920 and won the Third Division South title in 1924-25. They won the Third Division South title again in 1948–49, having been relegated two years earlier.

They fell to Division Four after relegations in 1965 and 1967. The club changed its name to Swansea City in 1969 to reflect Swansea’s new status as a city. They were promoted at the end of the 1969-1970 season.

The club won three promotions in four seasons to reach the First Division in 1981. It was during the following season that they came close to winning the league title, but then there was a decline near the end of the season, before finishing sixth, still a record club. It was from here that the club suffered relegation the following season, returning to the Fourth Division in 1986 and then narrowly avoiding relegation to the Conference in 2003.

Swansea City Supporters Trust Ltd owns 20% of the club, with their share hailed by Supporters Direct as “the highest profile example of the involvement of supporters’ trust in the direct running of a club”. The club’s subsequent rise from the fourth division of English football to the top division is chronicled in the 2014 film, Jack to a King – The Swansea Story.

In 2011 Swansea was promoted to the Premier League. On 24 February 2013, Swansea beat Bradford City 5–0 to win the 2012–13 Football League Cup (the competition’s highest margin of victory for the final), winning the first major trophy in the club’s history and qualifying for UEFA 2013-14.

Swansea City Home Stadium

Before Swansea Town was established, boys played football on a vacant lot where a plant called vetch (a type of legume) was grown. The site was owned by the Swansea Gaslight Company in 1912 but was deemed surplus to the Gas Company’s requirements. So Swansea Town moved there when they settled in 1912.

The ground originally seated 12,000, but it reached its peak attendance of 32,786 in a 1967 FA cup fifth round match against Arsenal. The last league goal ever scored at the Vetch was scored by Adrian Forbes, on 30 April 2005, as Swansea beat Shrewsbury Town 1-0.

On 1 July 2012, it was widely reported in the national media that Swansea City was beginning the planning phase to expand Liberty Stadium by approximately 12,000 seats. This plan would be conditional on a successful second season in the Premier League and could cost up to £15 million; the increase would result in a capacity of approximately 32,000 seats.

Later that year, the board of directors announced that planning applications would be submitted to the council authority, making Liberty Stadium the largest sports club-owned stadium in Wales.
