Swansea City History

Swansea City Association Football Club was formed in the summer of 1912, and following the lead of many of the Southern Welsh sides, they joined the Second Division of the Southern League in time for the following season. The club then turned professional and their first match was a 1-1 draw against Cardiff City.

Their first cup triumph came at the end of the 1912-13 season as they claimed the Welsh Cup. In 1920, the Swans became founder members of the new Third Division of The Football League, and the following season they became founder members of Division Three (South). After five seasons competing in Division Three (South), the Swans managed to reach the Second Division for the first time in 1925, going unbeaten for the whole season. The following season, Swansea reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup for the first time, though were defeated by eventual winners Bolton Wanderers.

Moving on to 1980-81, Swansea were battling for promotion from Division Two. The Swans went into a game against Preston North End on 2nd May 1981, knowing that a win would earn them promotion to the First Division for the first time in their history. They ended up winning 3-1 to secure their spot in Division One, and win their third promotion in just four seasons from where they started in Division Four.

During their first season among the country’s best, the Swans incredibly managed to finish sixth, before facing an unfortunate relegation the following season. After such success, Swansea City did the unimaginable and were relegated back down to Division Four in just four seasons. In 1993-94, the Swans won their first-ever Football League Trophy after defeating Huddersfield Town on penalties at Wembley Stadium, in front of almost 50,000 spectators. This feat was repeated in 2005-06 as the Swans triumphed 2-1 against Carlisle United.

It took Swansea almost 30 years to make a return to England’s top flight. After beating Reading 4-2 in the 2010-11 play-off final, the Swans won promotion to the reformed Premier League for the first time. In just their second season, they managed to win the Football League Cup after smashing Bradford City 5-0 at Wembley Stadium in front of over 80,000 fans. This is one of, if not the most memorable moment in Swansea City’s history – find out more Swansea City breaking news here!
