Swansea City and its supporters are unofficially known as ‘Jacks’. One explanation for this name is that during the 17th century, sailors from Swansea were respected and any ‘Swansea Jack’ was allowed to join the crew based simply on the town’s reputation for good sailors. Many, however, believe that the name originates from the renowned life-saving dog Swansea Jack. The area around Swansea traditionally had been a rugby union area, and despite previous attempts by a football club named Swansea Villa, there were no notable football clubs until the establishment of Swansea Town AFC in the summer of 1912.
Swansea City A.F.C. was founded in 1912 as Swansea Town and joined The Football League in 1921. The club changed their name in 1969, when it adopted the name Swansea City to reflect Swansea’s new status as a city.
