Wrexham fans get excited with potential huge cash injection as Ryan Reynolds makes £1bn revelation

Wrexham fans get excited with a potential huge cash injection as their co-owner Ryan Reynolds makes a £1bn revelation on social media.

After selling Mint Mobile wireless company to T-Mobile, Ryan Reynolds has just become wealthier, receiving a large pay day.

Reynolds, sold the company for $1.35billion (£1.12bn) and this has left fans of the National League leaders excited about what the future holds for the team.

Reynolds, who took over Wrexham’s ownership in 2021 with Rob McElhenney, has been involved in the club’s affairs since then and are in a title battle with Notts County to win a place back in the EFL.

Although it is not known how much Reynolds will receive, it will be a significant contribution to Wrexham’s future with ambitions on reaching the Premier League one day.

Reynolds is also looking at purchasing the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League, which could provide a significant boost to his bid.

Wrexham fans however are already getting carried away with tweets from them involving high-profile transfer possibilities that might take place after the news.

Wrexham’s first goal is to get to the Football League, and then establish themselves as a club within that.

Wrexham is just one point ahead of second place but are favourites to climb out the fifth-tier.

The £2m purchase of the club has allowed the club to take off in ways no one could have predicted.

Reynolds is also wanting to see more of the ‘Welcome To Wrexham’ series on Disney Plus produced. Reynolds has joined forces with a Toronto real estate group to try and buy the Senators and get into the NHL.

The franchise has been valued at $900m and they face stiff competition from rival groups to purchase it.

Though, Gary Bettman, the NHL commissioner is eager to see Reynolds join the league and believes that Reynolds’ popularity will only help boost league numbers.

Ryan Reynolds recently made an ambitious Premier League promise to Wrexham fans.

Reynolds’ and McElhenney’s Hollywood fame helps the club, makes them attractive to brands for sponsorship opportunities which other teams at this level of English football wouldn’t usually get.

“That’s what you see from Premier League clubs, Championship League clubs,” Reynolds said. “We want to walk the walk, even as a fifth-tier club. We say this all the time, but we want to be in the Premier League, as crazy as that sounds to some people. If it is theoretically possible to go from the fifth tier in professional football all the way to the Premier League, why wouldn’t we do that? Why wouldn’t we use our last drop of blood to get there?”

“We’re in it for the ride. This is a multidecade project,” Reynolds added.

“I genuinely get choked up thinking about that right now because it says everything to me,” Reynolds said reflecting on the time his side lost in the playoffs last season to Grimsby. “It speaks to the hope that they had, it speaks to the trust that they’ve placed in us — to take care of this incredibly cherished club that is an institution in this town and something that has been a big part of their lives for over 150 years.”

“Two years ago, I didn’t have this kind of passion for the sport, and in some ways, I see it as a plague,” he said. “In other ways, I see it as the greatest introduction that’s ever been made to me, at least from a sports perspective. It’s wild. I wish it didn’t dominate as many of my thoughts and deeds as it does these days, but you don’t make anything great without enthusiasm, they say.”
