HONG KONG, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Goldenway, a global financial services provider, has today confirmed the two-year extension of Swansea City Football Club's sponsorship.

Planning for the new season is well under way starting with a visit to Goldenway's headquarters in Hong Kong to arrange future Asian tours and coaching exchange programmes.
