Jenkins On The Liberty Revival

Jenkins On The Liberty Revival

Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins has expressed his delight at the record season ticket sales and believes that the Liberty Stadium's fortunes are about to change.

Since the move from The Vetch field a few seasons ago the atmosphere at the Liberty stadium has been lacking. The 20,500 all seater stadium has not captured the imaginations of many Swansea City fans.

This looks set to change this season with record season ticket sales being reported which could even go up to 8000. This is truly remarkable and Jenkins was in a very upbeat mood about next season.

Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins told The South Wales Evening Post :

''We have all enjoyed the last couple of years, but there was a feeling that things went a bit flat lastseason following on from defeat in the play-off final.' 'But I believe we are heading in the right direction again now and our season-ticket sales reflect that.

It's fantastic news from everybody's point of view that we have already sold more than in the last two seasons, and it just goes to show what can be achieved when supporters feel the club is turning round again.'

We are still selling between 50 and 60 season tickets each day,'



I certainly will echo Huw's sentiments. There is a wave of expectation and optimism at the club under the Martinez revolution.He has invested well in the Transfer Market not throwing away money as previous manager Kenny Jackett. Huw Jenkins also was quick to point out that the club secured all their transfer targets.

Jenkins told The South Wales Evening Post :

"Roberto has come back and he has produced that vital ingredient at a football club which is optimism.

People believe he is going to a good job for us.

We have had a successful spell in the transfer market, too, which is the result of planning very early on.

Nearly all the players Roberto wanted we have got and that is pretty unusual."'



The signings have certainly made fans much more optimistic but there are pitfalls should Martinez and the team not secure promotion next season.

Initiatives such as the £23 Season ticket for children in the South Stand. This will bring a new generation of Supporters through the turnstiles and ensure the continuation of support for the club.

This season could be marked as a turning point for the club to bigger and better things.

Huw and Roberto have been working overtime in making sure that the club is moving foreward! Now we can look forward to cheering on the Swans with a better atmosphere in the stadium. The few times it has been full the atmosphere has been electric and we have played well - even though we lost against Blackpool it was still a good game. Roll on August 11th!
