Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney’s surprise takeover of struggling Welsh football club Wrexham FC has been approved by its fan owner group.

Ryan and the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star first submitted an offer to buy the team from the Wrexham Supporters Trust over the summer and delivered a virtual presentation of their plans earlier this month.

Club officials announced Monday that members of the fan group had voted overwhelmingly to approve the takeover of the Hollywood stars.

A statement on the club’s website reads: “Subject to final agreement, league and FA confirmation, RR McReynolds Company, LLC will assume 100% control of Wrexham Football Club Limited from the WST.

“Both sides will now proceed to finalize the details of the acquisition and we will update Wrexham supporters as soon as possible.”

In a Twitter video shared by the club, the actors also promoted team sponsor Ifor Williams Trailers and confirmed that they are now set to become owners.

“Why are Rob and I proposing a North Walian trailer manufacturer?” the Deadpool star says in the clip, before Rob adds, “Well, because we just became owners of the Wrexham Association Football Club, and they’re our team sponsor.”

In their presentation to the fans, the actors vowed to make the club, which currently plays in the fifth tier of the English league system, a “global force” while maintaining its traditions and not leaving its Racecourse Ground stadium.
