Ground Information

The Liberty stadium has an all-seated capacity of 20,532. The clubs main stand is off to the visiting supporters right in the west stand.

There are no bad seats in this stadium and every section has a completely unobstructed view of the action. The more vocal fans sit in the east stand toward the north end.

Away fans

Visiting supporters are situated in the north stand behind one of the goals where up to 3,500 fans can be accommodated. The leg room and views from this area are excellent and as you'd expect from a stadium as new as this, the facilities and refreshments are up to scratch.

Away pubs

The Harvester and Frankie & Benny's just outside the ground. Opposite the stadium and over the dual carriageway there is Pizzeria Vestivio which is a lovely Italian restaurant offering stone oven cooked pizzas.

Just a few minutes’ walk away from the stadium on Llangyfeleach Road, is the Plough and Harrow, which admits visiting fans. A choice of a drink on the way to Swansea, go into the city centre or drink inside the stadium.

Car Parks & Public transport

Street parking is available within a short walk if you arrive at the stadium early enough. The club also operate a park and ride service charging £6 per car including the bus trip.

Do be aware of resident only sections if you choose to street park but this option does seem to be a favourite of some fans as it appears to be the quickest option for escaping afterwards.
