Preview for the Upcoming Swansea Away Game

Published

on

Our upcoming match against Swansea City is scheduled for today night with a 7.45 kick-off, and once again, it will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. This is especially convenient for those unable to make the trip to south Wales midweek.

Swansea’s Liberty Stadium is situated approximately two miles north of the city center, near the former site of the Morfa Athletics Stadium on the west side of the River Tawe. To reach the stadium directly by car, exit the M4 at Junction 45 and take the A4067 towards the City Centre (signposted A4067 South). Stay on the A4067 for around two and a half miles, and the stadium will be on your left.

Parking at the stadium is reserved for permit holders, and residential areas around the stadium have ‘residents only’ parking schemes. It is advised not to park in the nearby Retail Park, as there is a 90-minute time limit, risking a parking ticket. Away supporters are encouraged to use the Park & Ride Facility at the Felindre old steelworks. To get there, stay on the M4 until junction 46, where it is clearly signposted. The cost, including the bus to and from the stadium, is £6 per car. Away supporters have dedicated buses to the ground, waiting outside the away stand post-game to transport fans back to the car park.

Another option is the Landore ‘Park and Walk’ site at SA1 2JT, a 3-minute walk to the stadium, costing £10 per vehicle, subject to availability. For those cycling, there are 15 bicycle bays outside the South-East corner of the stadium.

For those considering a train journey, note that returning to Leeds by train after the game may not be feasible. However, directions are provided for those interested in this option, including a walk from the station or the availability of local buses.

Pubs within walking distance of the stadium include ‘The Harvester’ and ‘Frankie & Benny’s,’ with the ‘Plough and Harrow’ a short distance away on Llangyfeleach Road. Additionally, city center options such as the ‘Bank Statement’ and ‘No Sign Bar’ offer alternatives. Inside the stadium, Carling lager and Worthington bitter are available at typical football prices.

Food options include a Pizza Hut and KFC in the retail park on the other side of the river, with ‘Rossi’s,’ a recommended chippy, opposite the north end of the stadium.

The Liberty Stadium, shared with Neath-Swansea Ospreys Rugby Union Club, opened in July 2005 with a capacity of 21,800. The away section is in the North Stand, providing excellent views and legroom.

While our allocation for this game is 1,971, compared to the official capacity of 2,080 for the away section, the Club has submitted a planning application to extend the stadium’s capacity to 34,000, though no timeframe has been announced. The tickets for this match, ranging from £34 for adults to £12 for Under 12s, were quickly sold out for our allocation. However, home tickets remain available despite plans for expansion.
