Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney complete takeover of Wrexham AFC

10/02/2021

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have officially completed their takeover of Wrexham.

The pair have taken 100% control of the National League club from the Wrexham Supporters Trust.

Reynolds and McElhenney have made a £2 million investment in the club under the terms of the deal.

Reflecting the completion of the deal, Deadpool star Reynolds changed his name on Twitter to Wryan and McElhenney renamed himself as Wrob. The pair had previously announced the approval of their bid by making a spoof advert for club sponsors Ifor Williams Trailers.

McElhenney tweeted: “The @Wrexham_AFC handover is complete! We’re toasting with a limited-edition bottle of @AviationGin and I am rebranding as Wrob. Both of which I am apparently legally obligated to do as I’ve been informed Ryan now owns my life rights. My lawyer is currently looking into it.”


Hollywood star Reynolds donned a club hoodie embroidered with his initials in a picture shared to Instagram.

He said, “And away we go…” before adding the hashtag #UpTheTown.
