Swansea Building Society has renewed its partnership with Swansea City Football Club in a new sponsorship deal which will see the city-headquartered building society become back shirt sponsors for the 2022 season/ 23.
The renewed commitment follows a three-year sponsorship deal with the Championship side, which saw an executive lounge on the club’s site – the Swansea.com stadium – renamed the Swansea Building Society lounge.
The new deal will see the Swansea Building Society logo adorn the club’s kit in a prominent position on the back of players’ shirts on both home and away kits for the 2022/23 season.
Swansea Building Society and Swansea City AFC have a long history together, with the company having provided various sponsorships to the club over recent years. The two organizations also share a similar long history as key characteristics within the Swansea community. The football club, then known as Swansea Town, won its first league title in 1924, just a year after the Swansea Building Society was founded as a mutual. Both experienced tremendous growth and success in the years that followed.
As the construction company nears its centenary, it has achieved record results and passed the important milestone of £500m in total assets.
As a result, the mutual – with branches in Swansea, Mumbles, Carmarthen and Cowbridge – has expanded, investing £1m in IT and recruiting six new staff in the current year. This was all achieved thanks to growth of £28.5 million in the first quarter of the year – its highest growth figure ever since the Building Society was founded in 1923.
