The 2012–13 season was Swansea City's fourth season in the top tier of English football, and their second consecutive season in the Premier League. It was their 93rd season in the English football league system.

The club celebrated its centenary, and to mark the occasion released a new crest. In keeping with the centenary theme, the home kit for the season used the colours white and gold, rather than the more traditional white and black, making it very similar to the 2011–12 Real Madrid home kit (also manufactured by Adidas). The away kit for the season was red, white and green, depicting the colours of the Welsh flag.[1]

During pre-season, Brendan Rodgers became the new Liverpool manager and signed a three-year contract on 1 June. In total, Liverpool paid Swansea £7,000,000 compensation for Rodgers, coach Colin Pascoe, assistant performance analyst Chris Davies and performance consultant Glen Driscoll.[2] On 15 June, Swansea appointed former Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus midfielder Michael Laudrup as their new manager. Laudrup signed a two-year contract with the club.[3]

Pre-season friendlies[edit]

Swansea began their 2012–13 campaign with a 10-day pre-season tour of America. The club played against MLS sides Colorado Rapids and San Jose Earthquakes, and also against USL Premier Development League side Ventura County Fusion.[4][5] The Club also played at other venues within the UK, including a trip to Aberystwyth. This Swansea team contained some first team players, but also some reserves and youngsters, although it was part of the first team calendar. They also played Carmarthen Town. Swansea's first opponents at the Liberty Stadium were Blackpool.[6]
