Ben Tozer emphasizes that the interest and excitement surrounding Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney’s involvement with Wrexham show no signs of diminishing anytime soon.
In the spring of 2021, the Welsh team gained worldwide attention when Hollywood actors decided to invest in the club, which was playing in the fifth tier of English football. Their presence at SToK Racecourse was bound to generate a lot of attention, and this interest has been sustained throughout their co-chairmanship.
The “Welcome to Wrexham” documentary has given the team global exposure, turning previously lesser-known individuals into stars once the television cameras arrived. Furthermore, the team’s knack for thrilling victories on the field has captured the imagination of both dedicated fans and those with no prior affiliation to the club.
Addressing the ongoing appeal of Wrexham, club captain Tozer mentioned, “The interest is still there, and there are still many American fans outside the stadium every day, both before and after training. While it may not reach the same levels as when the owners first arrived and secured promotion back to the Football League, the interest persists.”
Looking ahead, Wrexham aims for back-to-back promotions in the current season. Tozer also commented on the challenges they expect in League Two in 2023-24, saying, “I’ve experienced this league before, and it offers more quality coming off the bench and a greater level of tactical sophistication. The players are in better shape in this league, and the crowds are larger. It’s an all-around stronger league, and we’re enjoying the competition.” As of now, Phil Parkinson’s team is in fourth place in the league, with a home game against the last-placed Sutton United scheduled for Tuesday.
