Hollywood biggies Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney could be up for an investment of a lifetime as the duo has decided to bid for Wrexham FC, a club based in Wales that plays in the National League, the fifth tier of the English football league system.

Wrexham FC who are currently the oldest Welsh club don’t really belong to the footballing stratosphere for the time being but all that could change in the years to come. The entire episode came to light after a Special General Meeting on Tuesday, with the Wrexham Supporters Trust (WST) – who have run the club since 2011 – confirming both names after 97.5 percent of the 1,254 members voted in favor of pursuing the talks.

Should the entire deal materialize, then not only would it be extremely beneficial for the not so famous club but also start a new chapter in the life of the dynamic duo.

From the silver screen to the National League?: Reynolds and Mcelhenney’s holy grail.

This is not the first time that Ryan Reynolds has expressed his innate admiration for the beautiful game. During the promotion of his blockbuster “Deadpool 2”, he was spotted in various football games as a part of the promotional tours. The man is also a Los Blancos fan and was spotted at Santiago Bernabeau in the company of his Deadpool 2 co-star Josh Brolin.

The latest investment seems to be the next step in him stepping closer to the footballing world.

On the other hand, WST director Spencer Harris seemed positively thrilled with the entire episode and expressed his admiration for Reynolds and Mcelhenney.

“I would like to think that Rob and Ryan think Wrexham is an attractive prospect with fantastic potential. People with the professionalism of Rob and Ryan do not come around very often and news of their interest is quite exciting for the supporters I’m sure.

“They are very driven individuals and very successful people in their industry. But from our discussions, I can say they are both down to earth and want what is best for the club.”

Before the deal finalizes, the duo would have to put forward their “vision for the club moving forward,” and should all go well, we may see the deal finalized by the end of 2020.

The deal – which will be detailed to members before any final decision is made – would see the purchase of the north Wales club for a “nominal sum” but also an immediate investment of £2m for the purposes of taking it forward as a business and as a successful football team.
