Eating and Drinking       

 The concourses are spacious, with food and beverage outlets, plus a number of television sets, for pre- and post-match entertainment. Refreshment-wise you will be greeted with a selection of hot and cold food ranging from pies to sausage and chips with the usual array of sweets and chocolate.

The steak and ale pie and chicken curry pie come recommended, but I am           advised that you should opt for chips only if you like them lukewarm (and that is        on a good day)

The Liberty Stadium has a supporters village bar, where there is also pre-match entertainment provided. If you are still thirsty after the match, head to the Riverside lounge behind the East Stand.

Next door to the Liberty is a Harvester pub and a Frankie and Benny’s restaurant. On the other side of Neath Road there are several more restaurants ,including an Italian, an Indian and a fish and chip shop.

               

Where Else to Eat and Drink:

The Bank Statement, 57 Wind Street, is a typical Wetherspoon's outlet, based in               a former bank, with Ruddles Best and Greene King Abbot as regulars and four rotating guest beers, plus the usual all-day pub grub.

No Sign Bar, 56 Wind Street, is next door, and offers a sharp contrast. It dates from 1690, is full of local history, and serves Young's London Gold and regular guest beers.

                                The Queen's Hotel, Gloucester Place, is handy for the Arts Centre and City Museum,                      and its walls are decorated with photos of Old Swansea. Beers include Buckley's                                        Best and Theakston Best - and the cooked lunches are highly rated.

                                The Wig, 134 St. Helen's Road, is an open-plan pub offering darts and pool, good                              food until 8pm and four hand pumps offering a rotating range of cask beers.

In terms of where to go before the game, award-winning local fish and chip shop Rossi's is opposite the ground and recommended by many, whilst there is also a selection of eateries around the ground including KFC, Pizza Hut, and a local Frankie and Benny's.

 

Accomodation

If you are staying in Swansea you are probably best advised to sleep in the city centre, rather than close to the Liberty, where there isn’t a lot to see and do.

There is a Marriott on the Waterfront, where there is also a branch of the Premier Inn and Morgan’s Hotel

The White House Hotel and Alexander Guest House are just outside the city centre.

The Dragon Hotel is located near to the railway station.

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?

Rugby’s Blame Game (Thu, 12 Apr 2018)
  As rugby union’s professionalism advances, and the stress on players continues to grow, only a drastic reduction in games for the elite players can avert a car crash of seismic proportions for the sport.       According to an excellent piece of research by player agency Esportif Intelligence, England’s players had played an … Continue reading Rugby’s Blame Game

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
