The Vetch Field was the home ground of Swansea City until the Liberty Stadium opened in 2005. It opened in 1912 and at its peak held over 30,000. However, at the time of its closure the ground held around 12,000. It was named due to the vetch, a form of cabbage, that was grown on its surface at the time. The last game at the Vetch was an FAW Premier Cup Final against Wrexham.
