Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have gone above and beyond for their football club Wrexham AFC. The two co-owners have redefined what it means to be supportive leaders ever since they purchased the Welsh football club. While money was invested earlier on, the actor and producer duo continued to invest time, care, and support towards the entire club. They encouraged their team after every little loss and celebrated every and any good move. Finally, the two of them have a genuine reason to celebrate.

While Reynolds and McElhenney are owners of the football club, they are also normal football fans at the core. And this means they chug champagne when their team wins. Not being one to break tradition, Reynolds and Rob McElhenney celebrated wholeheartedly as Wrexham FC marked two monumental achievements.

The Hollywood pioneers made it clear when they took over that taking the Wrexham FC women’s football team to the next level will be a priority. And they proved it as the Wrexham FC women hoisted the trophy as Genero Adran North champions and gained became a semi-professional team. A massive crowd of nearly ten thousand people gathered to see them achieve this feat. They were also blessed with visuals of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney celebrating with their champagne.
