History of Football: Swansea City AFC

Origins: The club was founded in 1912 as Swansea Town. Following Swansea’s new city status in 1969 the club changed its name to Swansea City. Generations of children had played football on a piece of waste ground in Swansea on which vetch – a cabbage-like plant used for cow feed – grew wild. This became known as Vetch Field and was leased by the Swansea Gas Light Company to the Swansea League who laid out clinker pitches. This is where Swansea Town played their first matches and the club stayed here until its move to the purpose-built Liberty Stadium in 2005.
