WITH the football World Cup under way all manner of team colours fill TV screens across the globe, but closer to home Swansea City fans are eagerly awaiting the unveiling of their own new colours.

The Swans have taken to Twitter to post today's stars wearing retro club shirts in order to tantalise fans ahead of the official launch of their new home and away kit for the 2014/15 season on Saturday.

Among the vintage snaps are Wilfried Bony in the 1989/91 DP-sponsored shirt, Ben Davies wearing the 1992/93 Action attire and Ashley Williams in the 1993/94 strip.

While Swans bosses were remaining tight-lipped, rumours are suggesting that not surprisingly the home kit will be the traditional white while the away kit could be black, or black and red.

To add to the excitement mock-ups of the supposed new design have cropped up on social media sparking debate among fans.

One fan posted on the Jack Army website: "Loads of these mock-ups popped up all over Twitter during the long-winded build-up to the current kits. Can't imagine anything too crazy.

"Wouldn't mind a classy black away kit though."

The club shop at the Liberty Stadium, the superstore in Cwmdu and in-store at Debenhams will be selling the kit on Saturday from 9am onwards.

Meanwhile both the Swans and Ospreys have teamed up with Ticketmaster UK ahead of the new season.

A spokesman for the Swans said: "We have listened to the feedback of our supporters since arriving in the Premier League three years ago, and we feel that this new system will bring nothing but positive rewards for our loyal fans.

"Fellow Premier League sides Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are just a couple of clubs who also use the Ticketmaster system. The new development will mean a number of changes to the old system, and it will be explained in more detail in the coming weeks as we count down to the start of the new campaign."

The new system will involve season cards for season ticket holders, better offers for supporters by keeping a close eye on individual ticketing profiles, the ability for supporters to print their tickets off online to save time and queues, the opportunity for ticket exchange between supporters and for season ticket holders to sell their seats for individual games.

Andrew Hore, Ospreys chief executive, said: "This is fantastic news for all parties and here at the Ospreys we are excited about working with them for this coming season and beyond.

"I have no doubt that by making the whole ticketing process easier and slicker, they will enhance the Liberty match day experience for all visitors."

    Is it wrong that now I've seen the old red and black trim again I'm kind of hoping for a White/Red/Black version of the Mexican world cup kit?

    £60.00 for a shirt is quite obscene. Just watch the price plummet if nobody buys.

    for 60 quid its not really a tease though is it? All I do is go down the club shop 2-3 months before the season ends and they sell them off for 20 quid.
