Swansea City holds first supporter forum on matchday atmosphere
Swansea City would like to thank supporters who attended the first forum regarding matchday atmosphere at the Swansea.com Stadium.
Fans attended the stadium on Thursday (June 16) and were joined by head coach Russell Martin, chief executive Julian Winter, senior club staff and representatives from the Supporters’ Trust.
Several key topics were discussed, including pre-match, during the match and at half-time, while the club offered supporters an update on the topic of safe standing and rail seating – a move that has been piloted at some stadiums in the UK in the last 12 months.
Many great ideas were shared by those who were present, including the subject of pre-match music, flags and motifs, big screens and particular songs.
One topic that was widely discussed on the night was the huge impact that the drum plays in the north east corner of the stadium. With that in mind, we are on the lookout for fans who are part of a band or play instruments to a good standard. We would also like local choirs to contact us.
If you are interested in hearing more about this and want to be part of ongoing discussions then please complete the form via the link below.
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.
We cannot promise to do everything that was discussed at the initial forum, but we will always listen to our passionate fan base and work with supporters on finding ways to help improve their experience.
