Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney took over the club in 2020. At first, it was considered by many to be a publicity stunt, but they have been praised for engaging with players and supporters alike.

'Welcome to Wrexham' was among other winners at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, including 'The Last of Us' and 'The Bear'. It made it to the top spot in categories including "unstructured reality programme".

Reynolds posted on X, formally known as Twitter, celebrating the wins.
