Ryan Reynolds has been vocal in calls for the side he co-owns to be given greater exposure, but will the Hollywood superstar get his wish?

The Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney co-owned Wrexham have secured League Two promotion for the first time since 2008, long after the celebrity pair's takeover of the club in November 2022 had already made headlines around the world.

Suddenly, a Hollywood script was being written in the most unlikely of destinations, with a ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ docuseries even hitting screens on FX, Hulu + Live and Apple TV as interest in the Dragons’ exploits began to build.

An ever-growing fanbase is developing, particularly in North America, but major obstacles still need to be overcome in terms of delivering live action from the Racecourse Ground to living rooms across the globe.

A selection of Wrexham games will be available to stream live worldwide on National League TV, which was launched in December 2022. Fans can sign up for a one-day match pass at the cost of £9.50, while international fans can purchase a half-season pass at the cost of £80 or go for a subscription at £22.50 a month.

ESPN has shown a number of Wrexham's FA Cup matches as the broadcaster holds the rights to that competition in the United States.

The occasional game is shown on BT Sport in the United Kingdom, while also being made available to stream on the BT Sport App, but those outings in front of a national audience tend to be few and far between.

Some games are also available to stream live on the Wrexham Player - the club's official video streaming service, which also posts highlights.

Highlights of Wrexham games are usually posted on the club's official YouTube channel, while unique bitesize highlights packages featuring voiceovers from Reynolds and McElhenney have been shared on TikTok - the club's principal shirt sponsor - garnering millions of views.

Interest is clearly there as Reynolds recently revealed to his 20 million followers on Twitter that ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ sat second to Game of Thrones prequel ‘House of Dragons’ on the Canadian streaming charts following its August 24 release.

Will more Wrexham games be made available to live stream in the future?

With Wrexham now in the Football League, more games are likely to be shown on TV and will be available to stream live.

Reynolds was vocal in his criticism of the National League and urged league bosses to arrive at a solution with BT Sport, the network with broadcasting rights for the competition.

Around the time of the initial criticism, Wrexham said as a collective in a statement on the club’s official website: "The matter of streaming of National League games for all clubs has been on the agenda for an extended period, with Wrexham AFC first raising this in April 2021.

"The ability to stream games would financially benefit all clubs and significantly enhance the profile of the League by providing the League’s Executives the platform to market the competition, generating increased central revenue."

The Vanarama National League ultimately responded to the sustained and public criticisms from the Wrexham owners, and a 'soft launch' of National League TV came in December 2022 - four months after Reynolds' statement.

The club said that it was "delighted to see the launch of the National League’s streaming service" and "[congratulated] all those involved with the launch."

Where to watch Welcome to Wrexham

Welcome to Wrexham is a sports documentary capturing the fortunes of Wrexham as they attempt to climb up the English football pyramid under the stewardship of Reynolds and McElhenney.
