FIFA 22 adding Ryan Reynolds' and Rob McElhenney's Wrexham AFC

By Sean Carey,
EA and Wrexham AFC have announced that the non-league football club, which is owned by the Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, will be playable in FIFA 22.


Over on Wrexham AFC's website, the Welsh club announced that it had entered into a "multi-year innovation partnership" with EA Sports. The non-league club, which currently resides in the fifth tier of English football, will be playable in FIFA 22's Kick-Off mode and can be found in the Rest of the World category.

Wrexham AFC was bought by Reynolds and McElhenney last year, with Reynolds saying at the time of the takeover that he hoped to "introduce the club to the world" and make Wrexham "a global force."

As part of the partnership, EA Sports will also be supporting Wrexham AFC's work off the pitch in the local community "via an initiative with Wrexham Glyndwr University and the provision of a community lounge at the Racecourse Ground in the future," a statement from the club reads.

FIFA 22 launches for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on October 1st.
