It has been announced this morning that Swansea City fans will be allowed in to the Liberty stadium on Saturday May 22nd to watch their side take on Barnsley.
Three thousand swans fans will be allowed in to the ground for the evening kick off. The first leg goes ahead on Monday 17th May In Yorkshire.This will be the first time Swansea City fans have been allowed back in to the Liberty for fourteen months.
First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, said: “It’s been a long and difficult 18 months for the events industry in Wales – for event owners, those who depend on the sector for the work - and for those who long to see the return of live events to Wales. As we look at lifting the coronavirus restrictions in Wales we have worked closely with event organisers to establish a list of pilot test events which take in a range of different locations and types of event. This work is bringing us a step closer to a return to events in Wales, I’d like to thank these event owners and Local Authorities and Health Boards for their commitment in working with us and wish them well over the summer. These events are very different in nature and location but access of attendees – whether participants or spectators – is strictly controlled by the organisers and agreed in advance”
Swansea City are yet to make an announcement on how fans will be selected to attend the game, but we expect something later today which we will report on here.

The club has been working extremely hard towards this possibility and are awaiting formal confirmation regarding the acceptance of the detail of this event from Welsh Assembly Government. We would like to thank supporters for their patience and will communicate any relevant arrangements in due course once they have been confirmed.
