Philadelphia Union II are set to play a match against esteemed National League champions and the subject of hit show “Welcome to Wrexham” Wrexham AFC on Friday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET at Subaru Park.
Wrexham AFC, co-owned by Philly native Rob McElhenney and Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds, was founded in 1864, making them the third-oldest professional association football club in the world. In their own Cinderella story, the club achieved promotion to League Two, the fourth tier of the English football league system, by clinching the National League title with a resounding 3-1 victory over Boreham Wood. This promotion marks Wrexham AFC's return to League Two after a gap since the 2007-08 season.
Bringing a bit of Hollywood to Subaru Park, Wrexham AFC's journey has not only inspired soccer fans but has also captured the attention of a global audience. The club's significant rise to prominence has been commemorated in the critically acclaimed documentary "Welcome to Wrexham." The film won not only won the Best Sports Documentary award, but also earned a nomination for Best Ongoing Documentary Series at the 7th Critics' Choice Documentary Awards.
Please note the priority list will close at 9AM ET on Tuesday, June 20th.
