Ian Owen, Swans Ladies general manager, said: “Everyone’s really excited. For many of them, they’ve had multiple Champions League campaigns and for the younger ones, they’re obviously delighted.

“It’s great to see smiles on everyone’s faces. We did well last year, we came very close. We know the task is a difficult one, but that’s what we’re in it for."

Captain, Alicia Powe, added: "It’s always an honour to be captain of the Swans and to lead them out in any game, but to be leading them out again in Champions League is an amazing feeling and I am excited.

“We learnt a lot in Cyprus last year and I think that set us up well for league, I’m hoping for the same again this year, to learn from Champions League, and focus on the league again putting everything we have trained for into practice. It is the best pre-season!”

Swansea City Ladies will kick off their their league campaign with a home match against Cardiff Met at the Swansea.com Stadium. Ticket details will be released in due course.
