A deal has today been signed, between the Swans and the City's University, to allow the Premier League side to train in new state-of-the-art facilities.
Under the agreement, the University-owned Fairwood playing fields will be leased to the Swans but will also provide a base for competitive fixtures and training for University teams.
The Swans hope to be using the pitches as early as October and the rest of the training facilities are expected to be completed over the next 12 - 18 months.
The facilities outlined in the agreement include:
- 8 full-size pitches, including 2 all-weather pitches
- Dedicated training pitch for the Swans squad, plus their own changing facilities in a refurbished Pavilion
- Additional buildings including further changing facilities, offices, seminar rooms and specialist medical and physiotherapy rooms
