Swansea City are a team from South Wales that play in the Championship. Known as the Swans, they play their home games at the Liberty Stadium. Their traditional kit is all-white.
Founded in 1912 as Swansea Town, they joined the Football League in 1921, and changed their name 48 years later.
They spent much of their existence shuttling between the lower tiers leagues, before finally reaching Division 1 in 1981. The following year they achieved their best league finish of sixth before relegate at the end of the next season. There then followed a period of decline which saw them tumble all the way down to the Fourth Division, before they climbed their way up again, winning Promotion back to the League In 2011.
In 2013 they won their only senior English trophy, the Football League Cup, thrashing Bradford City in the final. That earned them European football, which they were already familiar with on several occasions through winning the Welsh Cup.
Their main rivalry is Cardiff City, with the South Wales derby as one of the most hostile in Britain football. After several seasons where the clubs have played in different divisions, a Swansea prediction for next season is that the rivalry is set to be renewed with Cardiff likely to drop back into the Championship again.
Swansea relegate back to the Championship again at the end of last season; few people had a Swansea betting tip for this season which featured them as immediate promotion candidates again, and so it has proved.
In terms of next season, a likely Swansea tip is that they will consolidate their place in the Championship.
