Wrexham AFC Owner Wants Anthony Hopkins To Become A Fan

Rob McElhenney, co-owner of Wrexham AFC, has voiced his desire for Oscar-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins to be a fan of the legendary football club.

The actor and director, who has co-owned the club with Ryan Reynolds since February 2021, told the NME that he has already sent the Silence of the Lambs star official kits and supporter’s gear, and is hoping that he will showcase it.

Mr McElhenney, best known for his starring role in It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and Sir Anthony Hopkins have been collaborating on the Apple + series Mythic Quest, a comedy show about a video game studio.

He joked about the rivalry between Wrexham, based in North Wales, and Sir Anthony Hopkins’ home team of Port Talbot FC, hoping that since the pair are “buds” now after working on Mythic Quest, he might be convinced to come around to the team.

Mr McElhenney owns Wrexham AFC with fellow Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds, who bought the team after receiving support from the Wrexham Supporters Trust, the fan ownership group that has owned the club since 2011.

The ownership was steady but more focused on keeping the club alive rather than pushing for the team’s former glory.

Mr Reynolds and Mr McElhenney have stated their aims to turn Wrexham into a “global force” for football, and have both publicly expressed their love for the area and the club, promising it will never be renamed, rebranded or relocated whilst they are owners.
