THE BIGGER PICTURE: Former Gossip Girl actress Lively, 35, has been present at several Wrexham games this season alongside Reynolds as the men's team won the National League and gained promotion to League Two as National League champions.
WHAT THEY SAID?: "The owners of Wrexham AFC reached out to me through official channels," Lively said to Wrexham's website. “Our team had, of course, heard of Wrexham AFC but once we officially learned about their refreshing vision, we knew it was the right official fit for our refreshing sparkling beverage. Officially.”
