Wrexham AFC currently stands at the 2nd position in the ongoing season of the EFL. However, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney’s business venture has made rapid ingress beyond the field, stark proof of which came in the form of their latest announcement. Taking to X (formerly Twitter), the 47-year-old actor shared Odin actor, Sir Anthony Hopkins featuring in the Welsh side’s advertisement campaign for STōK Cold Brew Coffee, set to air during the Super Bowl.

At 86 years of age, the Thor actor donned Wrexham’s mascot, Wrex the Dragon’s attire. Running lines of poignantly witty dialogue while looking at the mirror and exuding sheer confidence, the intense direction of the clip led to the actor sipping through the cold brew. An offshoot venture of the Red Dragons’ brand, Hopkins will go on air in that 55-second clip on 11th February during the Big Match.

Close on the heels of the winter transfer window’s start, many notable figures in football opined that Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney’s side should exchange in transfers. The call came owing to many Championship clubs eyeing several Wrexham players on the backs of their upbeat performance. Thus, looking to secure their future, the Red Dragons signed on Luke Bolton and Jack Marriott up until 2026 and 2025, respectively.

Other key deals for Wrexham included releasing McAlinden and making Luke McNicholas’ loan deal permanent. Additionally, Paul Mullin and Elliot Lee also saw new work-ups on their contracts just after New Year’s Day. A key happening in any other EFL team, the transfer window changes came aimed straight at maintaining the team’s performance and staying within the top three ranks to secure an automatic promotion to the upper tier.
