Celebrity Supporters of Wrexham FC

What a weekend for Wrexham FC! The Welsh football club,owned by actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, were promoted to the English football league for the first time in 15 years. The historic moment saw the team win 3-1 against Borehamwood as 10,000 fans cheered them on. Reynolds posted a carousel of celebratory photos on Instagram after the match, alongside the hilariously emotional caption: "Everything I own smells like champagne, beer and grass. I'm still somewhere between giggling and sobbing. This town and this sport is one of the most romantic things on earth. Thank you, @wrexham_afc".

In the crowd for the momentous occasion, Reynolds and McElhenney were joined by another A-list actor: Paul Rudd. The "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" star was spotted in the stands watching the match intently with his Hollywood pals. But even before kick-off, Rudd immersed himself in Welsh culture by heading for a pre-game pint at the Turf Hotel pub. He was also joined by film director, Joe Russo, best known for directing four MCU films including "Avengers: Endgame" alongside his brother.

These aren't the only A-list stars who've shown their support for Wrexham FC. "The Crown" star Emma Corrin, who will be starring alongside Reynolds in "Deadpool 3", watched a nail-biting match against Notts County on 10 April, while Blake Lively and their four kids arrived at The Racehorse Ground in March, and David Beckham and Will Ferrell have been spotted at games, too.
