Wrexham AFC are pleased to confirm the club has received a £100,000 grant from the Welsh Government's Spectator Sports Survival Fund to help offset some of the losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This grant has been given following discussions between the club and the Welsh Government, after Wrexham AFC were the only National League club excluded from the Sports Winter Survival Package.
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.
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.
Wrexham AFC would like to thank Lesley Griffiths MS and Sarah Atherton MP, who both wrote letters in support of us receiving assistance.
