Shirts will mark Swansea's 50th anniversary as a city

The Swans will have a new look for the coming championship season.

And to mark the 50th anniversary of Swansea gaining official city status, the club have included the words ‘Oh City Said I’ around the inside waist of all shirts.



The kits and training wear have gone on sale in the club shop and online – on the same July 3 date as when Prince Charles stood on the steps of the Guildhall back in 1969 to announce that the town of Swansea was to become a city.

The football club would eventually officially change its name from Swansea Town to Swansea City in February 1970.

The home shirt comes in white interlock polyester with a faint embossed camo pattern for the first time. There is black panelling underarm with a black trim 'Kiwi' style collar, one button and the words 'Swansea City AFC 1912' printed inside.

The away kit is a black and green striped shirt that has polyester mesh underarm and around the shoulder seam. The crew neck collar with green trim also has the words 'Swansea City AFC 1912' printed inside.

The goalkeepers aren’t forgotten, with two shirts to choose from in pink or grey and blue, with camo patterning on the sleeves and shoulders.

To celebrate the 50-year launch, the club is offering free worldwide delivery over £50 on all online orders for a limited period.
