In February 2021, actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney took over Wrexham Association Football Club, a small team from the north of Wales, and now they’re releasing a documentary about their journey. “Welcome to Wrexham,” which premieres on FX on Aug. 24, begins with the initial late-night conversation between the actors where the idea was formed, and fast forwards to them standing with the club’s fans in the terraces cheering on the team they now co-own. Wrexham are the third oldest football team in the world and play in the English National League, the fifth tier of professional soccer.
