Away fan guide: Swansea City
FOR the last time this season, QPR are back in action, with Swansea City the R’s destination this weekend.
Rangers travel to South Wales for the final game of the 2021/22 Sky Bet Championship campaign, in what will also be Mark Warburton’s final game in charge of Super Hoops after his departure from Super Hoops was announced. W12 at the end of the season.
In a year that has seen many ups and downs, the R’s will be keen to sign on a high note as we seek to finish as high in the standings as possible.
Russell Martin’s Swansea are the opponents this weekend, who themselves will be keen to sign in front of their home crowd with a positive performance.
The R’s have had mixed results in recent years at the recently renamed Swansea.com Stadium, with victory last season – courtesy of Lyndon Dykes’ strike – being Rangers’ first victory at Swansea since 1981.
Traveling R supporters making the final trip to Swansea will be accommodated in the North Stand, which is directly behind the goal.
Of course, as the Swansea.com Stadium only opened in 2005, the ground is very modern with stunning views and great facilities – which will hopefully make for an enjoyable day out in Wales.
When traveling to Swansea from London, the preferred option is to take the M4 towards Junction 45, before taking the A4067 towards Swansea and Pontardawe.
Stay on the A4067 for approximately two and a half miles, before taking the first exit onto the A4217 towards the city center and Singleton Hospital, bear left onto Brunel Way with the stadium appearing on your left.
Please note that there are two car parks near the stadium, as well as a park and ride from the city centre. However, it costs £6 and only offers a limited number of spaces.
Fans should also be aware that the pitch is in a residential area and that parking is for residents only. So please plan where you will park before you drive to Swansea.
