Swansea Bay Football Club – Challenging the status quo through digital innovation

“The Welsh football league is primed for disruption – with vast opportunities for digitally savvy clubs to challenge the status quo.”
Ross Parry

Football is undergoing a revolutionary change in the way the consumer engages. In the era of the smartphone, we are now able to connect with the action behind the pitch. New media allows fans to “get to know the team” – even before a game is scheduled, played or aired.

With this growing trend, rises opportunity.

One man who’s embracing digital disruption off the pitch is TechHub Swansea Member, Ross Parry – Founder and MD of newly formed, Welsh football club Swansea Bay FC.

Swansea Bay FC will look to capitalise on these new habitats to gain traction and following, propelling them in to the Welsh league.

Want to hear more or have your chance to be part of Swansea Bay FC’s legacy? Join us @The Lounge TechHub, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet the team behind the disruption! Beer and pizza included 🙂

Book Launch: That Lone Ship

that lone ship on the horizon, 
arriving or leaving?

Join Rhys Owain Williams for the hometown launch of his much-anticipated debut poetry collection That Lone Ship, published by Parthian Books. Held in the relaxed setting of TechHub Swansea‘s basement café, on the night there’ll be readings from the book, music from the talented singer-songwriter Joe Bayliss and a fine selection of beers, wines, coffee and other hot and cold drinks available from the basement café bar.

“The decks of That Lone Ship fizz with the imagery of a changing seaside town. Its souls are chronicled with pathos and tenderness.” – Paul Henry

“Wide-ranging and intelligent, heartfelt and elegant – Rhys Owain Williams explores loss, love and a Swansea boyhood in poems that surprise and amaze.” – Joe Dunthorne

“Rhys Owain Williams proves himself a skilled navigator, charting a course through seas both calm and rough, familiar and strange. By turns moving, poignant, funny and undeniably local, these poems deal with place and people, love and friendship: Swansea town and its familial inhabitants in all their ugly (lovely) glory. That Lone Ship, whether arriving or departing, is one you’ll swim out to; one you won’t want to miss.” – Emily Blewitt
