The Wrexham Football Club could receive the investment of Ryan Reynolds & Rob McElhanney, two well-known actors/writers in Hollywood. It’d be a shocking investment for the actors to sustain, with Wrexham FC supporting placement in the English Football Leagues 5th tier. The proposal that Ryan Reynolds & Rob McElhanney will come during a general meeting later into September, where team owners are expected to negotiate & ultimately accept the investment. Maintaining a connection to Ryan Reynolds would drastically increase Wrexham’s popularity in Great Britain.
Inside sources indicate that 97.5% of the team owners have agreed that investment from Reynolds & McElhanney would favour their growth. The Wrexham Supporters Trust Board issued an official statement regarding the interest of these two Hollywood elites. It was revealed that proposed bids had been seen and that two known investors are considering Wrexham AFC for ownership. Sentiments from WSTB continued by showing McElhanney & Reynolds have a designated vision of where Wrexham AFC can go, and that an official vote will be maintained during a Special General Meeting.
Clarification on the proposal’s details hasn’t been issued by Wrexham AFX, Ryan Reynolds, or Roy McElhanney. It’s known that when Wrexham began looking for possible investors on September 15th, the request for investment was at $2.5 Million. Reynolds & McElhanney could easily afford the $1.25 Million to become leading forces with Wrexham AFC.
The World’s Oldest Club
Wrexham AFC hasn’t ever been permitted the opportunity to compete in the Premier League, England’s top-tier football competition. Their closest reach to professional football at Premier League level was competing at the FA Cup Quarterfinals, where they famously defeated Arsenal during the 1992 Third Round. This historic club also obtained the Winners Cup in 1984, which occurred when defeating Porto FC in the European Football Tournament.
Most aren’t aware that Wrexham AFC is the oldest professional football club in history, with their launch date occurring back in 1864. Wrexham AFC is 156 years of age and competes at the most senior football arena worldwide. The iconic “Racecourse Ground Stadium” was first constructed in 1807, sustaining a lifespan of more than 213 years. The Racecourse Ground Stadium is small in stature, allowing for a maximum of 10 thousand fans. It’s these unique historical record that likely has garnered the interest of Reynolds & McElhanney.
