Ryan Reynolds Unveils His Role in Wrexham’s Transfer Strategy

Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds

Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds plays an active role in all potential incoming transfers at the club, ensuring he speaks to prospective signings and offers support beyond football.

The Hollywood actor, together with fellow actor and business partner Rob McElhenney, has owned Wrexham since November 2020. They emphasize supporting players off the pitch as much as on it.

“We instill a belief in their ability and back them in terms of whatever it is they want to do outside of football because that’s just as important,” Reynolds explained to Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand.

Under their ownership, the Welsh side has achieved two promotions, advancing from the National League to League One.

With these high-profile owners, Wrexham has attracted players whose talents often surpass the division they are initially placed in.

When questioned about how Wrexham attracts such talents, Reynolds responded, “It sounds surprising, ridiculous, but it’s all just leading with honesty. I talk to every single potential signing that we have.”

“Like, what is your plan, do you have a family, a brand? These are the things that are increasingly important in 2024.”

“You just want them to feel like you have their back and that you are setting them up to win.”

Wrexham forward Ollie Palmer has previously acknowledged Reynolds and McElhenney’s efforts in promoting his personal clothing brand, WXM clothing.
