Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have purchased the soccer club Wrexham A.F.C in late 2020. The historic football club was part of a community in northeast Wales. They later became executive producers of the show Welcome to Wrexham with Boardwalk Pictures and others. Speaking about the show, Reynolds told Variety, “If you’re just reading the headlines, you probably think, ‘Oh, this show is going to be funny. It’s gonna be a fish-out-of-water story about two schmucky showbiz morons going in, falling on their asses, learning as they go. But the show literally does not center us. It centers the town.” The show has received critical acclaim as it tells the story of a middle-class town in association with the soccer club.
