Swansea City to hold supporter forum on matchday atmosphere
Swansea City is reaching out to the Jack Army for you to collaborate with the club and Supporters’ Trust on the matchday atmosphere at the Swansea.com Stadium.
Led by head coach Russell Martin and chief executive Julian Winter, the club – together with the Swansea City Supporters’ Trust - will be holding an open forum to collaborate with supporters on the topic of matchday atmosphere.
The club is hugely appreciative of the fantastic support from the Jack Army, and we all know what a difference you can make. As a club we feel it is important to work with our brilliant fans on ways to add to the atmosphere at matches and give the players even greater chance of success. We want to ensure that we are doing whatever is necessary to create the best foundation for supporters to be as atmospheric as possible.
The forum will take place on Thursday, June 16 from 6pm in the Sinclair Suite at the Swansea.com Stadium. Refreshments will be available and the bar will be open for supporters to purchase drinks. This will be an interactive evening with representatives from the club, where we would like those who attend to come armed with ideas and be ready to share their views with others. The club will also share some initial ideas and thoughts around this topic.
Other senior club staff will be present, as well as representatives from the Swansea City Supporters’ Trust.
Due to the nature of this event, attendance is limited and therefore the club asks supporters to complete the form below if they are interested in attending.
The deadline to complete the form is midnight on Monday, June 13. Supporters will be informed via email if they have been successful on June 14.
Swansea City chief executive Julian Winter said: “Myself and Russell have been in regular dialogue with senior club staff regarding ways in which we as a club can improve the matchday atmosphere.
“We felt the best way was to consult and engage with the most important people to any football club, and that’s the supporters.
“Your feedback is crucial to us and we want to hear your ideas to help understand how we can make it as vociferous as possible to ensure the players have the best chance of being successful, and we can all play our part together.”
Dave Dalton, chair of the Swansea City Supporters’ Trust added: “The Jack Army is the heartbeat of our great club and I have been proud to be a vocal part of the East Stand for many years.
“There are games when the stadium is absolutely rocking and if we can find ways to consistently improve that still further, we all know how much of a lift that can give to the players when the crowd is belting out at full volume. The 1-0 win when our 10 men held out for against Blackburn Rovers earlier this year was a prime example of this.
“The Trust are fully in support of the club engaging with the fans by hosting this event, and we look forward to listening to any ideas our supporters may have on improving our matchday atmosphere.”
