Wrexham Given £100K Grant

National League Wrexham have been given a grant of £100K from the Welsh Government's  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," said a spokesperson for the club.

"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."

Wales Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism Dafydd Elis-Thomas MS said that 'Following an exchange of correspondence with the club, they were invited to submit an application to the Spectator Sports Survival Fund 2020-21.'

"The application was deemed eligible for support and Wrexham AFC were offered a Funding Award grant in the amount of up to £100,000, which was accepted and paid in one instalment."
