Swans launch first Jacks Zone
15th March 2017
Swansea City is ramping up the matchday experience for fans with the launch of a new fun-filled Jacks Zone for the final five home games of the Premier League campaign.
Launching at the Liberty against Middlesbrough on Sunday, April 2, fans can enjoy live music, interactive games, competitions, promotions, giveaways, special guests and plenty of food and drink before and after the match.
Staged in front of the South Stand, the Jacks Zone will be open to home and away fans from 11am for the all-important clash with Middlesbrough and then reopen after the final whistle until 6pm.
"As a club we are thrilled to be able to launch the Jacks Zone to enhance our fans' matchday experience at the Liberty," said Swans' COO Chris Pearlman. "One of the priorities we have as a club is to provide our supporters with the best possible experience around our home fixtures. This extends beyond the game, from the moment they leave home to the time they return. The Jacks Zone is the start of that process.
"The aim is to make the Jacks Zone a permanent feature for every fixture next season, making adjustments moving forward based upon feedback and key learnings.''
As an introductory offer, the first 50 people to enter the Jacks Zone against Middlesbrough will be presented with a goodie bag, Swans club shop vouchers and more.
"Fans can enjoy a variety of activity stations,'' added Swans marketing manager Hannah Eames. "They include a football pool table, a speed cage, 3D photo wall, entertainment from a top football freestyler and live music from local band, The C90s.''
In addition, the club will be hosting a FIFA tournament, with players competing in a number of online competitions and culminating on matchdays with the top players battling it out for top spot (details to follow).
Also making appearances in the Jacks Zone will be past players, including club ambassador and fan favourite Lee Trundle. He will be joined by mascots Cyril and Cybil to meet and greet members of the Jack Army and pose for photographs.
The fun will continue after the final whistle until 6pm with more live music, a post-match Q&A session, plus the Arsenal v Manchester City game live on a big screen.
The Jacks Zone will be open again on Wednesday, April 5 for the Tottenham game (before kick-off only, from 5.15pm), and the final three home games of the season against Stoke, Everton and West Brom.
