Fast Track 100

Founded in 1912 as Swansea Town, Swansea City Football Club became the first Welsh team to play in the English Premier League two years ago. A policy of developing young players, rather than buying established stars, along with the increased ticket sales and Premier League television income have helped revenues rise to £67.1m in 2013. Chairman Huw Jenkins, 50, took over in 2003 and is planning to expand the club’s Liberty Stadium to 31,000 seats. This year, Swansea qualified for the UEFA Europa League for the first time.
