Swans Chairman discusses potential new investment
8th November 2014
Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins has spoken in depth for the first time about potential new investment within the club.
Preliminary talks have been held with parties to possibly increase commercial investment and revenue streams, although there is no guarantee that any investment will be approved.
Writing in Sunday's edition of the club's matchday programme 'Jack Magazine', he says: "There has been a lot of talk recently about potential new investment coming into the club.
"This needs to be considered in more detail before any of our supporters can decide if the thought of a new person or people sitting on our current Board of Directors to offer help and opinions on the future running of our football club is a good move or not.
"Whatever happens in the future, there are a number of clear questions that need to be asked:
"1. Will the current Board of Directors continue as they are forever?
"2. Can Swansea City operate in the same way for the next 10 years or so as it has in the past?
"3. Will standing still and protecting what we already have be enough for us to compete in the future?
"Although I cannot promise or predict the future, I can guarantee one thing - the current Board of Directors will always fight, as we have done over the last 12 years, to work together as one with the Supporters Trust to make 100 per cent sure that Swansea City Football Club remains the number one priority in all our thoughts and in every decision we make."
