Jenkins Asks For Fans To Fill The Stadium

Jenkins Asks For Fans To Fill The Stadium

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins is calling for the fans to fill the Stadium to help our promotion push as we enter the final 15 games of the season.

Jenkins told the Evening Post that the club's achievements are 'not far off a miracle' and the players deserve to play in front of a full crowd at the Liberty Stadium.

'Considering the clubs we are up against, what we are doing at the moment is not far off a bloody miracle,'

'I think the players and Brendan deserve to be recognised for that.

'Every game between now and the end of the season is going to be huge, and I believe the players and the management staff deserve to see the stadium full every week.

'When you look at the eight or ten clubs we are competing with at the top end of the table and the resources they have, we can feel very proud of where we are.

'But if we are to go on competing with clubs who have bigger budgets than we have, we need the public to be fully behind us.

'That doesn't just mean saying they are supporting us, it means being in the ground and being part of what's going on.

'Challenging at this level is hard enough anyway, and the support we get will ultimately decide where we end up as a club.'


Jenkins also said that the board of directors are constantly looking for ways to try and attract higher attendances:

'As a board of directors we are constantly working on ways to get the crowds up,'

'We realise that some people participate in sport, and at this time of year you have the rugby to compete with as well.

'But our catchment area is around 500,000 people and, given where we are in the league and what's in front of us, we want to see the stadium full.

'We have to get everybody on board so that the players and the manager can see that we are all with them.

'It goes without saying that if we could fill the stadium every week, it would help the progress of the club. And that is the aim for us. Until we get to the stage where there are people who can't get tickets because our games are sold out every week, we won't have achieved our goal.'


Swansea City are playing some entertaining football under Brendan Rodgers and this is constantly being mentioned and complimented by opposition managers and TV pundits.

No reason then not to get down to the remaining games at the Liberty Stadium this season if you can make it. Who knows we could be playing Premier League football next year!

"Simple reason fans stay away is the boring and unexciting style of play, many of my mates not Swans fans who have watched a few of our games on tv have all said we are a nice passing side but our play is to slow and boring, and many have just switched over, so if it's boring and unattractive to watch on tv then their not going to pay to watch."

Goals bring fans through the gates and fast attacking football. We aren't doing either--it's a myth and much too simple to say that a winning team brings in the crowds. Traditionally Swansea supporters love attacking football and hate tactical no risk styles. Sometimes the atmosphere in the Liberty is like the proverbial chapel.

The atmosphere is terrible at a lot of games. it feels like a reserve game there sometimes it's so quiet. Tickets are expensive and fans want to know they're going to get their money's worth, thats not always the case.
