Swansea City: Players to pay for fans' tickets at Sunderland


BBC


06/05/17

Swansea players will cover the cost of 3,000 away tickets for the club's match at Sunderland next Saturday.

Swans boss Paul Clement said after his team's crucial 1-0 win over Everton on Saturday: "It is a shame we can't bring all the fans.

"The players paying for the supporters' tickets came from Leon Britton and I thought it was a brilliant idea.

"That's been done by the players and led by Leon and we hope they get up there safely."

Fernando Llorente scored the only goal as Swansea's win combined with Hull's defeat against already-relegated Sunderland saw the Welsh club climb out of the bottom three with two games remaining.

Britton has not been a regular in recent weeks but started against the Toffees, and Clement added: "Leon was fantastic and he has been really great ever since I have been at the club.

"The fact he didn't play until the Stoke game, yet remained so professional and supported the players and did that even when he was out the squad.

"He helped me as club captain. He came in, did his job and you can see he has a fantastic connection with the crowd. It was really nice to see."


Britton himself, who has made more than 500 appearances for the Welsh club, said he was often amazed by the Swansea supporters.

"The support we've had at home and away has been amazing considering how tough it's been at times," Britton told Swansea's official website.

"That support has been there not just over the course of this season, but for a number of years.

"If there was ever a time that we need one another more than ever, it's now, over these last few games of the campaign.''

A positive weekend

Clement said the victory over Everton has given his players a huge lift, but insisted the job is not yet finished.

Swansea still have to travel to Sunderland before facing West Brom on the final day, while Hull face relegation rivals Crystal Palace before entertaining Tottenham Hotspur.

"It was a fantastic win for us at this stage in the season, when the stakes are so high," Clement added.

"I had a feeling the atmosphere would be good and I thought they were unbelievable today, getting behind the players against a really good team.

"We knew Hull would play first and we said in the meeting that whatever happened, we needed to win.

"The message was we have an opportunity, don't waste it. It ended up being a positive weekend, but we know how quickly it can swing the other way."

Is that 3000 tickets that fans have bought or are they covering the costs of all the tickets Sunderland have given them? Credit where it's due 3000 fans to Sunderland is not bad

Great gesture by the players, but people saying it's good support, is it really?

We took over a 1000 there, 12 o clock, Sunday live on sky, if our side had paid for tickets they would have been sold well before now, they have paid for 3000 tickets but only about 2600 sold. Which considering the tickets won't cost anything for one of their biggest sway trips in recent times isn't good.

Sure we took over a thousand there midweek about ten years back as well.

It was your first year in the Premier League, that's what happens. We took large away followings everywhere in our first year, many expecting it would be our one and only foray. Once you have been in the PL 6 years on the spin, a 16 hour round trip to Sunderland every year doesn't sound quite so appealing considering every game Ian streamed.

As for the 3000, only 2600 have been released so far and all snapped up within a day. Of course it is good support, as it stands the maximum possible has been taken up.

Updated numbers. All 3000 now sold and Sunderland say they won't give any more.

Swansea fans are now buying home tickets around the away fans and dotted around other parts of the ground.

good gesture by the club but also screams desperation. Sunderland will want to go out at home with a bang. Hull fked it last week and this really is the last lifeline for those munters to come down.

If it comes down to them having to beat West Brom then that's it cos they will do that imo.

Great gesture taken advantage of by a few as they sell the free tickets on.

Which means Swansea will have 3000+ fully paid tickets sold? Wow that's impressive! Plus transport costs for the 15/16 hour round journey! Hats off I say.

I'm sure they won't mind if we come back with 3 points. And not all football fans are Neanderthal morons. Those Newcastle fans in your end seemed to be fine.
