The Club, Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds were delighted to learn that the Council will consider at their forthcoming meeting on December 21, granting them honorary freedom of the County Borough of Wrexham.
Co-Chairmen, Rob & Ryan said: “This is a great honor that the Council are proposing in recognition of the global promotion and awareness that we have been able to create for Wrexham as the Club’s custodians.
“The most significant aspect of the honor is that it recognises that we have begun to achieve what it was that we set out to deliver, off the pitch.
“Our documentary Welcome to Wrexham has taken Wrexham to households around the World and the second series will hopefully add to the increased numbers who now know where Wrexham is.
“As we have repeatedly said, this isn’t about us, we created an opportunity that the community firstly embraced and is now taking forward. The good news is that we will only get stronger together with the community at the forefront.
“We would like to thank everyone who is considering us for this award and the people of Wrexham who are making this a rewarding experience for us too.”
Humphrey Ker, Executive Director said: “For the Club to be recognised for its long history rather than just the new era is very welcome and appropriate.
“Many before Rob & Ryan, made what we are achieving today possible and deserve credit for their contribution.
“We have always stated that we should be judged by our performance against our mission statement and to receive recognition that suggests this is being achieved, is gratifying for everyone at the Club.”
