Hugh Jackman Shows Support for Wrexham FC, Sparks Speculation of Investment
In a recent outing in New York City, Hugh Jackman, alongside his friends Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, proudly displayed his support for Wrexham FC. The actor sported a hat adorned with the Welsh football club’s logo, leading to rumors of a potential investment. Reynolds and fellow actor Rob McElhenney currently own Wrexham FC, and there is speculation that Jackman may join them in the National League.
Reynolds and McElhenney purchased Wrexham FC in 2021 for approximately £2 million (AUD $3,854,250). The team had faced financial troubles in the 2000s and had been absent from the Football League for over a decade. The acquisition received overwhelming support from the previous owners, the Wrexham Supporters Trust, with over 98 percent of voters in favor of the sale. The entire process was even documented in the FX television documentary ‘Welcome to Wrexham’, where McElhenney and Reynolds served as executive producers.
During their leisurely stroll, Jackman celebrated his 55th birthday with Reynolds and Lively. The actor’s close friendship with Reynolds opens the possibility of a potential business venture in the National League. However, it’s worth noting that Jackman is currently navigating the aftermath of his separation from Deborra-Lee Furness, his wife of 27 years. The couple released a statement in September announcing their decision to separate and pursue personal growth.
Excitingly, both Reynolds and Jackman are set to appear in the highly anticipated film, Deadpool 3. Reynolds will reprise his role as Deadpool (Wade Wilson), while Jackman will portray his iconic character, Wolverine.
As Hugh Jackman donned Wrexham FC merchandise, fans can’t help but wonder if a new investor is on the horizon for the celebrity-owned football club.
