Actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney – owners of Wrexham FC – have announced United Airlines as shirt sponsor.
The celebrity co-chairmen revealed the commercial partnership with the US carrier in a humorous video.
Fans of the Welsh football team – recently promoted to League Two – will see the airline’s name and logo on shirts from the beginning of the 2023-2024 season, for the men’s and women’s teams.
The stars said: “We seek out sponsors that match the spirit of both Wrexham Association Football Club and the people of Wrexham.
“The team, town and fans around the world are united as never before and United Airlines is committed to elevating our story and journey.”
Josh Earnest, United Airlines chief communications officer, said: “The passion and perseverance of this team on the rise has captured the imagination of people in the US and around the world.
“We’re also excited to partner with the team and their co-chairmen across social media and on their hit TV show as the incredible story of this team and its loyal fans continues to unfold.”
The Wrexham AFC players will travel across the Atlantic on United flights for the team’s first American tour.
The airline’s loyalty customers will have special access to Wrexham AFC matches in the US and in Wales through its MileagePlus Exclusives platform.
