Swansea ’til I Die: A Century of Supporting the Swans is out!
A joint production between the Swansea City Supporters Trust and the University-based Swans100 project, the book is made from material sent in by the fans themselves. Extracts from the survey of fans’ experiences as Swansea City supporters have been used – selected from over 300 respondents. There are also longer stories that people wrote down especially for the project.
The book is special because it is made by the fans, for the fans, and documents the real emotions and excitements and disappointments of supporting a club that has had its ups and downs over the years, but has had a special place at the heart of the local community for the last 100 years.
The book is available from the Swansea City Club Shop at the Liberty Stadium for £15.99. There is also an on-line purchasing facility: http://www.swanssuperstore.com/store/product/9501/Swansea-‘Til-I-Die/
You can watch a video here of three generations of fans featured in the book discussing their memories.
