Swans on song to gain German support
12th August 2014
Swansea City has gained yet more fans in Europe after the club hosted more than 75 youngsters from a German choir for last Saturday's match against Villarreal.
The group of teenagers are spending three weeks camping in the Gower, visiting south west Wales every two years for team building, activities and to worship at St Hilary's Church in Killay.
Despite regularly making the trip from Bruckmuhl near Munich since 2004, Saturday's visit was the first time the majority of the choir had seen the Swans play live.
Mike Powell, from St Hilary's Church, was the link officer who helped set up the visit to Liberty Stadium.
He said: "The group really enjoyed the occasion and their first experience at Liberty Stadium.
"A number of the group went and purchased the new shirt from the club shop, ensuring there will be a small band of new Swans fans heading back to Bavaria later this month.
"They love their football and despite the result they can't wait to come back to see another game in two years.
"Their leader and I would like to thank Chairman Huw Jenkins and everyone at the club who made this visit possible, allowing us to strengthen our ties with new fans."
