The Swansea City Supporters’ Trust was born out of necessity; the necessity to save our club from financial ruin, and take back local control. Our story dates back to 2001, and our aims are as relevant today as they were back then.
What are our aims?
How we deliver these aims
The Trust is governed by a Board of volunteers who are elected by members every July. The group is comprised of Swansea City fans from Wales and further afield, all of whom share a common interest in representing the views of members and fans.
The Trust Board deliver a number of activities and initiatives to ensure the voice of the fans is heard within the club. As a shareholder, we have a Supporters’ Director who sits on the club’s Board. The SD is consulted and involved in decisions taken by the football club and is there to ensure that the impact of decisions on the fanbase is considered.
Issues such as the matchday experience, cup and season ticket prices, stadium rules, catering, and fan experience are regularly discussed and the views of the fans are voiced.
As a shareholder, the Trust is able to engage with key personnel within the club’s management team, and if necessary, highlight issues at a much earlier stage than is the case for fans at most other clubs.
As a Board, we also focus on building our membership base, providing new opportunities and initiatives for members, and supporting community initiatives and organisations.
