The @Wrexham_AFC handover is complete! We’re toasting with a limited-edition bottle of @AviationGin and I am rebranding as Wrob. Both of which I am apparently legally obligated to do as I’ve been informed Ryan now owns my life rights. My lawyer is currently looking into it. pic.twitter.com/f4fdpJtlIq

According to CNN, the two men gained control of the team after a $2.77 million investment. Wrexham Football Club is in England’s fifth tier league.

While I don’t know anything about European soccer or the sport in general, I’m all in on any pro sports team owned by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
This is going to be a content machine. Both men are among the funniest guys on the planet, and they’re now owners of a pro sports team.
This is going to be absolutely awesome.
There are no small bottles, Wrob. Only small owners…. with small bottles.
p.s. We have the same lawyer. https://t.co/2KzLWRZFO3

Even though I don’t love soccer, I would buy just about any pro sports team if I had the money. A team in England’s fifth tier league? Yeah, sign me up.
Props to the duo for entering the sports game. It’s pretty awesome.
