Home Support Increases Following Cardiff Win

Home Support Increases Following Cardiff Win

An extra 1,018 Swansea City fans attended the Liberty Stadium after our 3-2 win against Cardiff City.

The club would like to thank the fans for their on-going support as last Friday's match at home to Derby, saw an increased home support - the biggest since our record attendance against Yeovil in 2005.

17,804 attended the Derby game in total, 17,384 of which were Swansea City fans. At the Cardiff City game, the crowd was 18,209, with a home support of 16,366.

Manager Paulo Sousa says a big thank you:

'I set the fans a challenge to fill the stadium and they responded,''

'And I'm pleased we could give the fans the victory they deserved.

'I'm grateful for their support and with them behind us we can go far.''


Vice-Chairman Leigh Dineen also told the Official Site:

'It was a fantastic effort and everyone at the club greatly appreciates it from the Board of Directors to the manager and the players,''

'Our challenge is to fill the stadium week in, week out, and we took a major step forward against Derby.

'Ticket income is by far the biggest revenue stream we control. It represents over 70 per cent of our total income and 1,000 missing fans over 23 games hits us hard. In fact, it hits us to the tune of about £500,000 per annum.

'That's money we'd be able to invest in the first team or the youth department.''
