Here’s How Twitter Reacted To The Reynolds/McElhenney Takeover Of Wrexham AFC

Posted by

Hollywood superstars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have bought 156 year old Welsh football club Wrexham AFC

First thing you need to know is Wrexham is a fan-controlled team since 2011 so Reynolds and McElhenney had to submit an initial “vote of interest” to the Wrexham Supporters Trust who voted 97.5% in favor of their bid.

After being approved to present their case for ownership, the Hollywood duo held a group video call with the 2,000+ members of Wrexham’s ownership group to present their financial offer.

The Hollywood duo will invest $2.6m into the club to pay for players and facilities as well as sign a 25 year stadium lease for $150k a year.

The news took the football world by storm and here is a collection of some of the best Tweets and reactions.
