Swansea City Thread

Swansea City agreed a shirt sponsorship deal with Swansea University as part of an effort to move away from an association with betting companies.

The Swans have had betting firms on their shirts for the past four seasons.

A House of Lords Select Committee report has recommended Premier League clubs should not be allowed to have betting firms on their shirts.

Last season, half of Premier League clubs and 17 of 24 Championship clubs were sponsored by bookmakers.

Swansea, who were beaten in the Championship play-offs this season, were mindful of children wanting the same shirts the players wear and say they have listened to supporters' criticism on the issue in previous seasons.

"This is the perfect partnership that encapsulates our club and our city," Swansea's head of commercial, Rebecca Edwards-Symmons said.

"This is the first year of not having a betting brand on our front of shirt in four years, which enables our Junior Jacks to wear the same shirt as their Swans heroes."

'Hope more clubs follow'

James Grimes, a former gambler who runs charity The Big Step, which is tackling football's relationship with gambling, said he was "delighted" by the news which would "help reverse the normalisation of gambling within football".

He added: "The positive reaction from their fans is a reminder that gambling shirt sponsorship is overwhelmingly unpopular with fans and parents.

"Young fans should be able to wear the same kit as their parents and their heroes but most importantly, children shouldn't be exposed to brands that sell products associated with addiction.

"We hope more clubs follow their lead and that government ends all gambling advertising and sponsorship in football."

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."

You're a scouser. Just go and nick one.

Alan Curtis goal here is still my favourite Swans moment. I was in seat L51 in the wooden stand behind the goal - as I had been for every game during the rise from Division 4 to Division 1 in success

So far Clement has done a great job,long may it continue.   It's a shame that we had 11 wasted games when Bob Bradley was in charge he was totally clueless and out of his depth,there can not have

Swansea City are set to sign Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White on a season-long loan.

Gibbs-White made seven Premier League appearances during 2019-20 and has played over 50 games for Wolves.

The 20-year-old was in the England side, coached by Swansea boss Steve Cooper, which won the 2017 U-17 World Cup.

Kyle Naughton has agreed a new Swansea City contract and Chelsea centre-back Marc Guehi is to return to the Championship club on a season-long loan.

Defender Naughton, 31, was a free agent after his previous deal expired, but will sign a new one-year deal with the option of a further 12 months. 

Guehi, 20, will rejoin Swansea after a loan spell last season.

Steve Cooper's team are also set to sign Morgan Gibbs-White on loan.

Cooper will be delighted with all three deals, having made no secret of his Desire to keep the versatile Naughton as well Guehi, who impressed in the latter stages of 2019-20 having arrived on loan in January.

Naughton, a £5m signing from Tottenham in 2015, has made 183 appearances Swansea to date and was one of their most consistent performers last season.

He is able to play at right-back, wing-back or in central defence, with his blend of versatility and experience making him an important figure for head coach Cooper.

Wolves' Gibbs-White, 20, is viewed as a replacement for Conor Gallagher, another player who impressed at Swansea after joining on loan from Chelsea last season.

Cooper's transfer business is not done, with Swansea still in the market for at least one forward and hoping to re-sign Liverpool's Rhian Brewster on loan.

Swansea City has completed the signing of Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White on a season-long loan, subject to international clearance.

The 20-year-old has made 70 first-team appearances at Molineux, helping the club re-establish itself in the Premier League and playing a part in their Europa League adventure last season.

Gibbs-White becomes Swansea’s third signing ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, following the return of Freddie Woodman and the arrival of Korey Smith on a free transfer.

The EFL have reached a ground-breaking deal with Sky Sports that will enable clubs in all three divisions to stream every match next season live on their websites.

Season-ticket holders will get access to their side's home matches free of charge and more casual fans will be able to watch every game — including Saturday 3pm kick-offs for the first time — for a fee of around £10.

The clubs hope the money raised will help offset the loss of gate receipts while supporters are shut out of stadiums.

SWANSEA CITY CONFIRM SEASON TICKET OPTIONS FOR 2020-21 SEASON

Club Crest White Background

As you are all aware the  Club has  worked very closely with the Supporters Trust over the last  three  months regarding the 2019-20 season ticket options, and would now like to provide supporters with a season ticket update for the forthcoming 2020-21 Championship season.  

The season is set to get under way with a trip to Preston North End on Saturday,  September 12,  with the Swans’ first home clash to take place on Saturday , September  19,  against Birmingham City.  

While  everyone associated with the club would love to welcome the Jack Army back to the Liberty as soon as possible, under current government guidance we are not yet in a position to do so. 

Therefore, we have initially put in place that all  current  season ticket holders who are able to forego a refund will receive a live stream to all our home fixtures. 

Also permitted under  EFL  rules  is our ability to stream up to seven away midweek fixtures to season ticket holders. Please note, if a weekend fixture is moved to a midweek fixture or a Friday, it will not be included in the seven midweek streaming fixtures. 

Therefore, as Swansea City have seven midweek away fixtures for the 2020-21 season, we can confirm that these fixtures will be included.

This streaming service will be available to season ticket holders while  matches are held behind closed doors, thus meaning that these are games that fans are unable to attend.  

All other away matches (weekend away fixtures) - which are not broadcast on Sky - are  available to  purchase  for £10 per match as per EFL requirements.  This is not a club decision, with the decision over this matter being taken by the EFL. 

All 2020-21 season ticket holders will receive a unique streaming code  automatically, along  with instructions of how to redeem their code. These codes will be sent out the week commencing September 14, in advance of the first home fixture. 

As with the concluding matches of the 2019-20 season, once the code has been redeemed it will automatically activate supporters’ Swans Club Accounts to receive the stream for future matches, as detailed above. 

The process will be identical to the process supporters followed for the concluding fixtures of last season, and only the fixtures outlined above will be available. 

You will only have to enter this code once and it will be active for all available streams as detailed above. 

In the meantime, we ask supporters to check their Swans Club Account is up to date and linked to their season ticket account. 

To check your account is linked to the correct account number, please login to your account and go to the “Link Account Number” section of your profile on swanseacity.com. 

Your continued support to Swansea City is greatly appreciated and receiving the stream while  we must play behind closed doors - and fans are not able to attend fixtures - helps the club with its long-term financial sustainability.  

As well as providing you with the stream, the club pledge that if 25% of the season is played behind closed doors, those season ticket holders who have not taken a refund will receive a discount off their season ticket for the 2021-22  season. 

Season ticket holders who are adults and have paid full price will receive a 12.5% discount off their 2021-22 season, whilst discounted season tickets such as seniors, youths etc will have a 10% discount. 

Should 50% of the season be played behind closed doors then a 20% discount will be applied for the 2021-22 season, while full paying adults will receive 25%. 

We hope circumstances mean that you are able to leave your season ticket money in the club to help with its long-term financial sustainability.  

Season ticket holders who accept the streaming option and leave their money in the club will receive priority access back to the Liberty Stadium when  crowds  are able to return. This is not a guarantee of access as numbers may be restricted by Welsh Government.  

If, however, you do not wish to receive the live stream and now seek a season ticket refund please click  HERE  and access your ticketing account. Under this section there is an option to select monthly refunds for the matches played the month prior. For example, October’s refund would include any matches played in the month of September. This option must be selected prior to midday Friday, September  11,  2020. It is important that all accounts in your party are linked to enable you to request multiple refunds.

Please note that - where there are adult and child season ticket holders within the same family or household - adult season ticket holders cannot request a refund and then claim the streaming option through a child’s season ticket. This is because children are not permitted to have the stream option, and would not be admitted to the stadium alone once fans are allowed to return.

If you choose to take a refund you will relinquish your season ticket benefits, but you will retain your seat. 

At this point the  Club  would like  to reiterate that this is an initial pledge from us, and we will of course be reactive (and as proactive as we can be) should anything change in terms of audiences being allowed in stadia or the wider pandemic.  

Finally, we are aware that we have many multiple season ticket holders living in the same household, and while we cannot confirm when crowds or mass gatherings are possible, we want to pledge something extra to the Jack Army.   

We pledge that we will hold a family fun day exclusively for season ticket holders at the stadium as soon as we are able to do so.  This will include  opportunities to see  the players and  ensure that our young season ticket holders have a day to remember.   

Furthermore, existing season ticket holders who have not yet renewed will be guaranteed the same benefits if they renew and pay in full before October 4.

For those unable to renew their season ticket at this time, we will allow season ticket holders to reserve their seat until full capacity is available in the stadium. 

This will require a 20% deposit with the full remaining balance to be paid prior to the return of full crowds at the Liberty. The balance which is payable will be a pro-rata season ticket price determined by the number of home fixtures remaining at the time at which full crowds may return.

CLUB STATEMENT | TREVOR BIRCH LEAVES SWANSEA CITY

31 minutes ago
  Club

Swansea City chairman Trevor Birch has left his post at the club.

Birch, who was appointed club chairman in April 2019, is set to join a Premier League club in due course.

“I am leaving Swansea with an extremely heavy heart,’’ confirmed Birch. “I arrived at the club at a very difficult time, but I hope I have provided professionalism, stability and a solid foundation internally which will stand the club in good stead going forwards.

“Steve Cooper, his staff and the players have given us all some great moments this season which will live long in the memory. I also can’t thank the supporters enough for the kindness and support they have shown me over the last 17 months, and I wish the Jack Army and the club every success going forward. The supporters deserve it.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the senior management team and every one of the club’s staff who have supported me during my time here. They are all loyal fans of the club and their commitment and work ethic has been truly inspirational to me."

A Swansea City ownership statement read: “We have enjoyed working with Trevor, and we understand during these unprecedented times the Desire to be closer to home and family in London.

“Trevor will be missed, and we would like to thank him for his work on behalf of the club over the past 17 months.

“Moving forward, we have great confidence in our management team to continue the momentum we have built heading into the coming season as we work on a new management leadership structure.’’

On his appointment 17 months ago, Birch was handed complete day-to-day control of all football and business matters, reporting directly to majority owners Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien.

While Birch initially built his reputation in the financial services sector as a senior partner with big-hitting industry leaders, he also had a footballing background as a professional with Liverpool, Shrewsbury and Chester, plus chief executive roles at Chelsea, Everton, Leeds United, Sheffield United and Derby.

During his time at the Liberty Stadium, Birch, a highly experienced and well-respected executive, was lauded by many for the excellent job he did, on and off the pitch, following the resignation of former chairman Huw Jenkins.

Following the departure of manager Graham Potter last summer, Birch was central to the appointment of current head coach Steve Cooper and a new backroom team that led the club to the Championship play-off semi-finals.

He also restructured the club’s recruitment strategy under new head of recruitment, Andy Scott.

Birch oversaw the club’s business operations and installed a new senior management team; prioritized communications with supporters, links with the community and local businesses, plus a strong working relationship with the Swans Supporters Trust.

Everyone at Swansea City would like to thank Trevor for his work at the club and wish him well for the future.

 

Rumour is Spurs have offered him a job.

SWANSEA CITY APPOINT JULIAN WINTER AS CHIEF EXECUTIVE

Julian Winter

Swansea City is pleased to announce the appointment of the highly experienced Julian Winter as the club’s new chief executive.

Winter, 54, replaces Trevor Birch, who has left his post with the club. 

He will oversee the day-to-day matters of the club and will take up his position later this month. 

A Swansea City ownership statement read: "We are pleased to welcome Julian as the club's new chief executive.  

“As part of the appointment process we received significant positive input from many constituencies within the club and those who have worked with him at his prior clubs.

“His extensive industry experience and collaborative leadership style will be a valued addition as we embark on this next chapter."

On his appointment, Winter added: “I’m obviously delighted to have been selected as the new CEO at Swansea City.  

“I look forward to getting started at the club on a day-to-day basis, meeting the staff across the club and helping lead Swansea City to a successful future on and off the field.”

Winter built his reputation through a number of key executive roles in recent years and is held in high regard within the footballing industry. 

Most recently, he spent four seasons as the Huddersfield Town chief executive. Appointed as a director at the John Smith’s Stadium in 2016, he played a key role in helping to guide the Terriers to Premier League promotion under former boss David Wagner.

Previously, Winter served for three years as Watford’s chief executive, where he built a strong working relationship with former Swans boss Brendan Rogers.

He has also held successful chief executive roles at Sheffield United and Notts County.

After a playing career ended with over 100 appearances for his home-town club Huddersfield, Scunthorpe (loan) and Sheffield United, Winter graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a first-class honours degree in leisure and recreation management before becoming a community director at Grimsby, Sheffield Wednesday and Watford.

More bad news:

Swansea City's academy has lost its prized category one status ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Earlier this year, former chairman Trevor Birch confirmed the Swans would continue to operate at their Fairwood and Landore training sites, adding that the club's academy would retain its category one status for the upcoming campaign.

In a statement, he said: "I am pleased to announce that with the full support of the owners we have made the decision to continue to operate the two training sites to maintain our academy category one status for season 2020-21."

However, owing to the coronavirus pandemic costs have had to be further reduced, with Swansea already in a precarious financial position following their relegation from the Premier League in 2018.

And it has been confirmed that Swansea no longer operate a category one status academy. They have downgraded to category two ahead of the upcoming season.

It comes as a blow to the club who have seen a significant number of players progress from the academy into the first team in recent years.

Current first team stars including Joe Rodon, Ben Cabango and Connor Roberts are all products of the club's youth system while the likes of Daniel James and Oli McBurnie - who were sold for significant sums last summer - also came through Swansea's academy.

Tivonge Rushesha, Jack Evans and Jordon Garrick are among the academy players to be given their first team debuts by Steve Cooper last season.

However, it cost the club in the region of £3m a year to operate a category one status academy.

Swansea chiefs felt the change status was the best way to further slash costs at the club ahead of what will be Cooper's second season at the Liberty Stadium.

They remain confident of nurturing their own players in the future and have vowed to continue to give young players the opportunity to thrive. However, the decision will impact Swansea's ability to recruit new players.

The change means Swansea's Under-23s will no longer compete in Premier League 2, having finished eighth last term.

Swansea won the Premier League Cup and the Premier League 2 Division 2 title in the 2016/17 season under Cameron Toshack and Gary Richards. 

The duo have since gone on to take charge at Cypriot outfit Pafos FC.

The Swans initially gained category one status in the summer of 2016, just two years before they dropped out of the Premier League.

At present, Blackburn Rovers, Derby County, Middlesbrough, Norwich City, Reading and Stoke City are the only Championship sides operating at category one status.

As for the Premier League, Sheffield United are the only side without category one status.

Morgan Gibbs-White scored on his league debut to give Swansea City victory at Preston North End in their opening game of the Championship season.

Swansea shaded a scrappy first half as another new signing, Jamal Lowe, had a couple of half-chances.

Jake Bidwell had a goal disallowed for the visitors a minute after the restart before Gibbs-White, on loan from Wolves, tapped in from Bidwell's cross.

Preston's best effort in a flat display was Brad Potts' rebound over the bar.

This fixture had the potential to serve as something of a barometer for the teams' early promotion credentials, with both in contention last season.

Swansea had surged into the play-off places when the previous campaign resumed in June, whereas Preston travelled in the opposite direction as they dropped out of the top six.

Both sides looked rusty in the opening exchanges at Deepdale, neither able to control possession for sustained periods.

The visitors were marginally better and created a couple of opportunities for Lowe, who twice had shots blocked by Preston defenders.

Former Wigan forward Lowe was one of three league debutants in the Swans' line-up, with fellow new arrivals Korey Smith and Gibbs-White starting in midfield. 

There were no new signings on display for Preston, and Alex Neil's side offered next to no attacking threat as the first half drifted to its goalless conclusion.

Swansea thought they were ahead within a minute of the restart but Bidwell's back-post volley from Andre Ayew's cross was disallowed for offside.

Five minutes later, both players played important roles in the goal.

Ayew launched a raking diagonal ball to Bidwell inside the Preston penalty area, and the left wing-back's low cross was well finished by the onrushing Gibbs-White.

When Bidwell then had another chance to score as he headed narrowly over, it looked like Swansea might pull away from their opponents.

Although Preston were nowhere near their best, they were still in the contest and came close to an equaliser when Potts fired over from a rebound, but that was about the best the home side could muster.

Preston's late search for a leveller amounted to a series of hopeful long balls, which Swansea repelled with relative ease to make a winning start to the season.

Gibbs-White was excellent yesterday, especially in the first half. We really should have been 4 or 5 up by half time. We just don’t get the final ball or the finish right. That’s why Cooper has talked about the need to sign at least one striker in the last 3 press conferences. He’s obviously trying to put pressure on the new Chief Exec and the owners. He’s obviously worried about the club selling one or two as well as the squad is pretty bare bones as it is. 
Just under 3 weeks of the transfer window left, I think.

Swansea City have signed Brighton striker Viktor Gyokeres on a season-long loan.

Sweden international Gyokeres, 22, has played eight senior games for Brighton, scoring once.

He scored seven goals in 26 appearances while on loan at German second-tier club St Pauli last season.

"I hope I can help the team as much as I can with what they need up front, with goals and assists and helping the team get points," Gyokeres said.

"I have been looking at how Swansea have been doing, both this season and the end of last season. It's been a great start and we hope we can keep that going."

Gyokeres was Swansea head coach Steve Cooper's top target after it became clear Liverpool's Rhian Brewster would not be returning to Wales.

Cooper had made no secret of his desire to sign a centre-forward and 6ft 2in Gyokeres fits the bill. 

He has appeared in Brighton's three EFL Cup ties this season, but has been allowed to leave on loan by former Swansea boss Graham Potter after the Seagulls were knocked out of the competition by Manchester United on Wednesday.

Gyokeres revealed Potter - as well as his former Swansea staff members Billy Reid and Bjorn Hamberg - had recommended he moved to Wales.

"I spoke to them a little bit as they had been here," Gyokeres told Swansea's website. "They only had good things to say and that made me more comfortable to come here and play here."

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
