Football News: Wrexham AFC’s Hollywood-Worthy Rise to League One

Wrexham AFC, the oldest club in Wales, is set to compete in League One for the 2024/25 season after securing back-to-back promotions in the last two years. This remarkable turnaround comes just a few years after Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney purchased the club for $2.5 million.

The Red Dragons’ Hollywood-worthy run has captivated football fans across the world, and if their momentum continues, they could potentially earn promotion to the Championship. After being stuck in the National League for 15 years, Wrexham secured promotion to League Two in the 2022/23 season, followed by another promotion to League One the following year.

To reach the Championship, Wrexham will need to secure either a first or second-place finish in League One, which typically requires 90 to 100 points. If they fall short of an automatic promotion spot, they will have to compete in the play-offs, which requires a minimum of 76 points.

“While getting to the Premier League is the ultimate goal, the owners have proven their commitment to the club’s success. In just four years, they have quadrupled Wrexham’s total worth, gained close to 4 million new followers on social media, and created a docuseries that won five Emmy awards.”

As Wrexham prepares to face the challenges of League One, football enthusiasts will be closely following their journey, eager to see if the Red Dragons can continue their Hollywood-worthy rise through the English football pyramid.
