Swansea City were founded in 1913 as Swansea Town. Their most successful years have been since the 1980s when under their then player-manager John Toshack, they were promoted to the old First Division in 1981 and won three consecutive Welsh Cups and also made an appearance in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.

Swansea City play their home matches at the Liberty Stadium which can entertain a crowd of 20,532. They have been playing at this stadium since 2005 and share the stadium with the Ospreys rugby team. The club bears the nicknames The Swans and The Jacks.
