Matchday parking information

Swans fans should be aware that the local authority's new parking enforcement van is expected to be in operation around the streets of the Liberty Stadium on matchdays.

It takes pictures of cars parking illegally, including resident-only bays, and a penalty notice is automatically generated and the fine sent to your home address.

Therefore, to avoid an unwanted fine, supporters are advised to use one of the following council authorised car parks:

Park and ride at Felindre: J46 of the M4 (exit motorway and follow the signs)

Park and walk site at Landore: Adjacent to the city centre park and ride site

Park and walk next to Swansea Tennis Centre

Park and ride at the Recreation Ground at St Helens.

The cost is £6 per car.
