When a group of mostly local businessmen, led by current chairman Huw Jenkins, took charge of Swansea in 2002, the club was in the bottom division and in grave financial danger.
The Swans were a game away from falling out of the Football League in 2003 but, 14 years later, they are enjoying their seventh successive season in the Premier League.
In 2016, the club were acquired by Stephen Kaplan, the head of an investment company and vice-chairman of basketball franchise Memphis Grizzlies, and Jason Levien, managing general partner of Major League Soccer team DC United.
Kaplan and Levien were attracted to Swansea by the strength of the relationship between the fans and the club, the attractive playing style of the team and the sustainable financial model that was being pursued. Under the new ownership, Swansea City Supporters’ Trust has retained a 21% share and a seat on the board meaning that Swansea are the only Premier League club with a fan representative on their board.
As the only Premier League club in Wales with a wide catchment area and a modern 21,000 capacity, there is strong potential to build a sustainable and competitive Premier League club over the long term.
