When Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney entered into the realm of sports through a multi-million dollar deal to secure Wrexham AFC, despite their lack of experience, the two knew to invest in Wrexham AFC’s Women. The dynamic co-owners made a resolute promise to prioritize the women’s team, a decision that is paying rich dividends today. This decision bore fruit surprisingly early as the women’s team etched their success on paper even before the men’s team could get promoted to the English Premier League.

Reynolds and McElhenney’s foresight in harnessing the potential of the women’s team underscored their visionary approach to revitalizing Wrexham AFC. However, it was not just foresight. A clip from the Welcome to Wrexham docuseries reveals just how the owners, specifically McElhenney, hyped up the team.

The Hollywood pioneers who made a blockbuster entry into Wrexham AFC are notorious for bringing joy to every room they step into. And their fans all around the world got to witness this through a clip of Rob McElhenney from the second season of the sensational sports docuseries Welcome to Wrexham. The Wrexham co-owner stepped in to have a chat with the women’s team and brought their spirits up by joking with them. But he soon kept the jokes aside to ensure them that they were very important to him and Reynolds. “You are all very important to us,” he said.

Reynolds had once said that Wrexham AFC’s most noble achievement is the locker-room culture. While many did not understand him then, McElhenney’s interaction with the team beyond the field has painted a great image. To support both the men’s and the women’s teams of a football club that was considered done and dusted is one of the brightest badges on the Wrexham AFC owners’ shoulders.
