Wrexham gains promotion to English 3rd division, Ryan Reynolds celebrates

Wrexham, a Welsh soccer team co-owned by actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, has secured back-to-back promotions, reaching the third tier of English soccer after a 6-0 win over Forest Green. The team's Hollywood owners have brought attention and investment to the club, propelling it to within two tiers of the Premier League.

In order to secure automatic promotion to League One, Wrexham needed a win over Forest Green along with dropped points from MK Dons and Barrow. The team's victory was never in doubt as they led 4-0 at halftime, while MK Dons and Barrow both suffered defeats, ensuring Wrexham's promotion.

Despite pre-game warnings, fans rushed onto the field to celebrate the achievement, marking the first time in the club's 159-year history that they have earned promotion in two consecutive seasons. Reynolds expressed his joy on social media, calling it "the ride of our lives" and congratulating the team for their success.

Wrexham now sits in second place in League Two, four points behind Stockport, who also secured promotion on the same day. With the top three teams automatically promoted to League One, Wrexham's position is secure, with fourth-placed MK Dons unable to catch up.

The team's journey has been documented in the show "Welcome to Wrexham," showcasing the impact of Reynolds and McElhenney's ownership on the club. This success highlights the team's resilience and determination, as well as the positive influence of their celebrity owners.
