Welcome to Wrexham

TV Series

For transparency on this one, I’m not a football fan. I don’t have a team and I’m one of those people who just watches the odd World Cup game, or bits and pieces of the Euros.


But this documentary is great (so far) and gets me closer to understanding why some people care so much about the game and why in some cases, it becomes their entire life.

Welsh club Wrexham has been on its knees in Division Two for years and at the end of the 2020, Hollywood actors (!) Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds made a successful bid to buy the club, hoping to turn it around. This series documents that and what happens afterwards.

We’re watching on Disney+.


Welcome to Wrexham appeared in Issue 3 in the Watch section.
