Jenkins Urges Fans To Watch Their Team

Jenkins Urges Fans To Watch Their Team

Chairman Huw Jenkins is urging all Swansea City fans to watch their team at the Liberty Stadium to help their push for promotion to the Premier League.

Our current average attendance is just under 1,000 less than last year's average of 15,407 and Jenkins says bigger crowds at the Liberty Stadium means more money available to spend on players.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has the opportunity in the New Year to strengthen the squad and fans can help the cause by attending the home games and helping to provide more transfer money.

Jenkins is confident crowds will increase if we can maintain our strong position in the Championship table:

'We would like to think that we could fill our stadium every week, and at the moment we probably deserve that to happen,'

'We are experienced enough to know that sell-outs will not come overnight, but we are ticking along and, if we are still competing in the top two or three from January onwards, I think everything will improve.

'People will naturally think that we are in with a chance and I'm sure by the time we finish in May, our average crowd will be better than it was last year.'

We want the stadium full,'

'It goes without saying that the more fans we can pull in, the more money we can spend on players. That's simple — a fact of life.

'We are up against teams in the Championship who do get bigger crowds than us, so naturally they will have more money to spend.

'The bigger crowds we get, the easier it is for us to compete.'

Start thinking of the fans then Huw Jenkins. Swansea have a big fan base in West Wales and the constant changing of Saturday afternoon fixtures to evening kick-offs on Fridays is hitting these loyal fans hard. Who wants to leave work and travel 60 or 70 miles on cold icy evenings--- not ideal I'm afraid. The other thing that needs to be addressed by the chairmen is the double home fixtures in one week--Tuesdays then Saturdays-- how can people afford to pay for two tickets in one week--there is a recession on--someone should tell the FA.

most games are moved due to the Rugby, Swansea have no choice to do it, if we played tomorrow the attendance would be hit due to the rugby on tv. i do agree with 2 home games in a week just isn't on, and the price of food and drink in stadiums is just ridiculous

Yes to be fair our hands are tied with fixtures and changes. The football league decide on dates and that sometimes means we have two consecutive home games so we have no say. When the home games clash with Wales rugby we usually change because our attendances have been affected in the past.
