Working with sports marketing experts, SportQuake, Goldenway identified Swansea City as the ideal partner having been greatly impressed by their achievements in rebuilding the club over the past 10 years, rising through the divisions to become an established Premier League club culminating in winning the Capital One Cup this year.

"It is the first time Goldenway has invested in football sponsorship and we are honoured that they have entrusted us to carry their brand into the Barclays Premier League and the world stage.
"It shows how far we have come over the last decade, on and off the pitch, and I'm convinced that this new partnership will help take our global profile to a whole new level.
"Goldenway is trusted by investors throughout the world. They are leaders in the financial industry and I'm sure that we can establish a fantastic working relationship together as we drive both businesses forward over the next 12 months."
