The Swans’ will kick-off live on Sky Sports in their debut Premier League season away to Manchester City in the newly-named Etihad Stadium.

The release of the live Sky Sports football schedule also see Swansea City take on Wolves and Aston Villa in the first quarter of the season on Saturday 22nd August (12:45pm kick-off) and at home Sunday 27th November (1:30pm kick-off) respectively.
