Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have come to be the face of the Welsh league, Wrexham AFC. Over the past two seasons, their celebrity status has played a massive role in the ever-increasing popularity of the competition. Moreover, the Hollywood duo has left no stone unturned in transforming Wrexham into one of the top teams. From expensive signings to record-breaking player fees, Reynolds and McElhenney did not shy away from spending money.

The Red Dragons will soon be facing Salford City in the Second Division. Interestingly, Salford is owned by some of the biggest names in football. As the two teams prepare to go head-to-head, let’s see which glitzy ownership enjoys a greater net worth.

Back in 2014, Manchester United legends Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, and Phil Neville took over the reins of Salford City. Each player enjoys a ten percent stake in the club alongside David Beckham, who purchased another ten percent. Naturally, David Beckham boasts the highest net worth among the Salford owners. The former PSG star has a whopping £ 370M net worth. Overall, the Salford City owners are nearly worth £475.1 million combined.

 On the contrary, the Hollywood duo of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are reasonably behind Salford, with a combined net worth of £338 million after the former benefited from the T-Mobile takeover of Mint Mobiles in 2023. The reason behind the gap in the net worth of the clubs is that Wrexham AFC is still climbing back the ladder it fell from.

While they may not be the same when it comes to the net worth of their owners, given how Wrexham AFC is steadily moving towards the finish line, it might just move up in the ranks. This will lead to the Welsh club reclaiming another milestone that got lost in the pages.

Wrexham and Salford have enjoyed an intense competition over the years. They have faced each other multiple times in the various stages and put up a show for their fans every time. The last time Wrexham met Salford in January 2019 resulted in an embarrassing 2-0 defeat for the Red Dragons. Prior to that, Wrexham thrashed Salford 5-1 back in 2018.

As of late, the Red Dragons are clearly above Salford. Wrexham currently stands at the seventh position in the league table. Meanwhile, Salford is currently resting at the 13th position. However, the past few games have been a struggle for the Red Dragons while Salford has won three out of three matches in a row.
