Club statement | Rotherham United v Swansea City

Swansea City strongly condemns the behavior of a small number of supporters following today’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Rotherham United.

At the conclusion of a game played in a great spirit and a terrific atmosphere, there were instances of unacceptable, unsavoury behavior involving both Swansea and Rotherham fans in the south-east corner of the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

That such behavior should happen during a period where the club has worked closely with the EFL in promoting the ‘Love Football. Protect the Game.’ Campaign – which has seen clubs across all three divisions stress the need to eradicate anti-social behavior from our game – only adds to our sense of dismay.

Ourselves and Rotherham United will now work together – and with South Yorkshire and South Wales Police – to identify those involved in the scenes witnessing after the full-time whistle. Such behavior is simply not acceptable.

We want to thank the large majority of Swans fans who – as always – behaved impeccably. They represented the club and backed Russell Martin and the players brilliantly.
