ORIGINAL POST: Wrexham AFC to play the Philadelphia Union July 29th at Subaru Park
Co-owners of Wrexham AFC, Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds, will be bringing their team stateside for an international friendly against with the Philadelphia Union on Thursday, July 29, 2021.
Rob called into The Preston & Steve Show to make the announcement:
The game will take place at the home of the Philadelphia Union, Subaru Park located in Chester, PA. The event will be happening in partnership with CORA Services and Philabundance, two Philadelphia based organizations close to McElhenney’s heart. Tickets will be free, but all those in attendance are asked to bring food donations for Philabundance.
Distribution of tickets is still being worked out, but both Rob and Ryan are excited to bring their team stateside and finally see a game in person. (Ryan is filming a movie but making every attempt to be in attendance.) The game and all of the behind the scenes antics will be filmed for Welcome to Wrexham, an FX docuseries following the actors’ purchase and stewardship of the Welsh soccer team.
The Preston & Steve Show is set to broadcast live from Subaru Park on July 29th. Folks can tune in locally on 93.3 WMMR, or from anywhere in the world by streaming live on wmmr.com or downloading the WMMR App.
Details are still being finalized and subject to change. Check back frequently for ticket into and new details which will be added to this page as they are released.
