Wrexham host Wycombe in first League One match of season

Wrexham will host Wycombe Wanderers in their opening match in League One on Aug. 10 following the club’s first back-to-back promotion in its 159-year history, the English Football League announced on Wednesday.

The club who are co-owned by actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney finished second in League Two last season, four points behind champions Stockport County.

The pair have already had a transformative impact on Wrexham, guiding them from the National League to the third tier of English football since taking over the club, which is the subject of Disney+ docuseries “Welcome to Wrexham,” in February 2021.

Wrexham will face Birmingham City — who boast NFL legend Tom Brady as a minority owner — at St Andrew’s in their sixth match of the campaign on Sep. 14 before hosting them at the STōK Cae Ras on Jan. 25.

The club confirmed on June 18 that forward Steven Fletcher has signed a contract extension and will remain at the club for the 2024-25 season. He scored eight goals in 34 appearances.
