Administrative / Biographical History

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Swans100 project explored, conserved and celebrated the heritage of Swansea City FC. It commemorated the Swans' (Swansea City Football Club) centenary in 2012 and was a partnership between Swansea University and the Swansea City Supporters' Trust. It established an online archive at <https://scfcheritage.wordpress.com/players/> consisting of fans' memories, photographs and other historic documents. In giving a voice to football supporters, the project explored and celebrated the relationship between Swansea City and the community and aimed to create a permanent record for future generations.
