12th November

Neil Taylor has hailed the Swans' involvement in the Barclays Premier League live event in India.

Following Monday's announcement that the Swans are among the majority of top-flight clubs heading to Mumbai for the two-day event in December, Taylor believes the club's participation in the Live event will prove a roaring success.

The Swans left-back, whose mother hails from Kolkata, visited India last year India due to his role with the Barclays Premier League's Premier Skills Kolkata Goalz Project, which is run in partnership with the British Council.

"It's great to see this event heading to India. The new Indian Super League, with an array of top footballers, has created an even bigger interest in football within the country," said the Wales international.

"I was in India last year and I saw the passion people have for football. Football is a growing sport there and the Barclays Premier League Live event will be a big success.

"So it's fantastic news for Mumbai, and also for our club. For Swansea City to be part of the event is fantastic.

"It just underlines the remarkable rise of this club that people are now wanting to know as much about the Swans as they do the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool."
