Love Football, Protect The Game - A message to supporters

7th May
Swansea City supporters

As we approach our final game of 2022-23 Championship season, everyone at Swansea City would like to thank you for your support from the stands both home and away this season.

The atmosphere the Jack Army create is a fundamental part of the club and Russell Martin and his staff and players are hugely appreciative of the fantastic support you have given us throughout the campaign.

Ahead of our final game of the season on Monday, we must remind you in the interests of safety for everyone inside our stadium, that the pitch is for managers, players and match officials, while the stands are there for you to support the team.

At the end of last season, some clubs witnessed unsavoury and unwelcome scenes with a small minority of people entering the field of play whilst other fans took to the pitch in celebratory mood.

Pitch incursions are dangerous and anyone who does encroach onto the playing surface will face strong sanctions that could include a ban from attending matches here at the Stadium and across the country and police action.

It is a criminal offence to enter the pitch and the real-life consequences for these actions have been felt by many with some fans receiving criminal records which can impact employment, education prospects and international travel.

It is not only yourself that can be disciplined. There could also be an impact on your family members and Swansea City.

We ask you to keep the pitch for players and the stands for supporters and avoid any unnecessary disruption.

Love Football, Protect the Game.
