The couple will work with Longoria and fellow investors Al Tylis and Sam Porter to improve the position of the Necaxa Club.

According to VarietyLongoria, the multi-talented Mexican-American, helped bring Reynolds and McElhenney into the investment group.

What projects will Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have?

The Reynolds-McElhenney connection raises the possibility that the Necaxa Club be the focal point of a television documentary series such as “Welcome to Wrexham”.

The FX series, which premieres its third season on May 2, chronicles the revitalization of the city following the influx of capital for the historic team.

Reynolds and McElhenney shocked industry watchers when they agreed a $2.5 million deal to take over Wrexham in November 2020.

Club Necaxa was valued at nine figures in 2021, when a group led by Tylis and Porter and including Longoria bought about 50% of the franchise from the Tinajero family.
