Liberty Stadium (capacity 20,520)
The Liberty Stadium is the third largest stadium in Wales, with a capacity of around 21,000. It has been home to Swansea City since 2005 since their move from Vetch Field, where they had played for 93 years. The Ospreys Rugby Union team shares the stadium with Swansea City.
The stadium is conservative in its design, but is still impressive looking both inside and out. Each stand is two tiered, the only difference being that the West Stand has a row of Executive boxes, making it slightly taller than the other three stands. Both ends have an electronic scoreboard, and transparent roofing to allow more light to the pitch.
Away fans visiting the Liberty Stadium are located in the North Stand behind the goal, with a typical allocation of around 2,000.
Parking at the stadium is designated for permit holders only, and most of the surrounding streets have residents only restrictions in place. Instead, away fans are advised to use one of the Park and Ride schemes. There is also a small number of places for street parking if you are willing to walk a distance to the stadium.
