“We have been discussing this working partnership for some time and their enthusiasm for the project and the club has been overwhelming.
“While Joma is a major world player in the quality manufacture and supply of sportswear and footwear, their flexibility, focus and commitment to Swansea City has impressed everyone at the club.

Joma representative, Alberto Lopez, said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Swansea City at such an exciting time for both the club and our company.
