Wrexham Football Club, with the backing of Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, is setting its sights on reaching the Premier League within the next five years.
This ambitious goal was revealed by former Wrexham player Brett Ormerod, who spoke to GOAL about the club’s trajectory. Ormerod expressed his optimism, stating: “Hopefully, I’d like to see them in the Championship or Premier League in five years. The owners are ambitious enough to get there.”
Wrexham, a Welsh club that currently competes in League Two, has been benefiting from the substantial funds provided by its high-profile co-owners. The club has already demonstrated its ambition by securing the National League title in the 2022-23 season. With the financial backing and support from Reynolds and McElhenney, Wrexham is on a remarkable journey towards success.
Reynolds and McElhenney have been vocal about their goal of propelling Wrexham to the highest echelons of English football.

The club’s remarkable transformation has not gone unnoticed. Ormerod’s words reflect the deserving nature of Wrexham’s current position. The club has come a long way from the brink of bankruptcy and is now on a path towards greatness. The owners’ ambition and dedication have played a significant role in this transformation.
With their eyes firmly set on reaching the Premier League, Wrexham is a club to watch in the coming years. The combination of Hollywood glamour, financial backing, and strong fan support makes their goal seem within reach.
