Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney committing £2m and doing documentary at Wrexham

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have had their Wrexham takeover plans approved by supporters.

The Deadpool star and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia favourite shocked the footballing world when their plans to purchase the National League side were revealed earlier this year.

Further details of their ideas have now been revealed, with no fee being paid upfront.

However, the pair have promised to invest £2million, while creating a documentary.

Elhenney has said: “We just became owners of Wrexham Association Football.

“You may have never heard of Wrexham, the racecourse ground or Ifor Williams Trailers, but you will.

“To the Wrexham Supporters Trust, thank you for your faith and trust in us.

“We’re humbled, and we’re already getting to work.”

Reynolds then joked: “Oh f***, this is really happening!”

Reynolds, who has more Twitter followers alone than Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea individually, spoke in a webcast alongside McElhenney, which was backed by director Spencer Harris.

Harris said back in September: “I’m sure people will consider it a remarkable story.”

Before adding when asked about their plans: "I'm going to leave that to them when they're ready.

"But why not Wrexham? We are the third oldest professional team in the world, the oldest in Wales and play at the oldest international stadium anywhere in the world.

“I would ask for people to give us time to complete the story.

“Hopefully we can bring another amazing chapter to the history of what is the third oldest professional club in the world and the oldest professional club in Wales.

“I would like to think that Rob and Ryan think Wrexham is an attractive prospect with fantastic potential.

"There is room for fantastic growth for the club. You have north Wales, mid-Wales and The Marches, there's around a million people who will have an interest in Wrexham Football Club.”
