WREXHAM AFC has received a £100,000 grant from the Welsh Government’s Spectator Sports Survival Fund to help offset some of the losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

A spokesperson for the club said: “Wrexham AFC were pleased to receive £100,000 from the Spectator Sports Survival Fund.

“The Club has suffered losses well in excess of this amount as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which are currently being met by the Club’s owners, Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds.

“The owners have committed to ensure the Club survives the financial implications of the pandemic. This grant helps to ensure this commitment does not compromise the owners’ proactive plans to make a positive difference in the wider Wrexham community.”
