Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney’s Wrexham’s Racecourse stadium gets a new name

Wrexham's Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have announced the Red Dragons' famous Racecourse ground will have a new name next season.

In an announcement video, the co-owners revealed STōK Cold Brew Coffee has purchased naming rights for the stadium. However, the pair were keen to keep the Racecourse portion, leading to them deciding on the name STōK Racecourse.

The owners said: "We wanted a stadium sponsor that captured the vitality and energy of Wrexham Association Football Club while also, like Welsh, being a bit of a learning experience to say. STōK Cold Brew Coffee fit the bill perfectly. We’re incredibly excited and a little over-caffeinated."

STōK don't sell their products on these shores – but Brittney Polka, Vice President of Ready-to-Drink Beverages, said: "Some may wonder why a U.S.-based cold brew brand would sponsor a tea-drinking Welsh football team. The answer: STōK is all about bold moves

“We were captivated by the story of Wrexham – the team, the fans, and the community – and we’re honoured to be welcomed into the Wrexham family.

"We’ll be cheering on the Red Dragons and raising our cold brews from afar."

Wrexham ended their exile from the Football League earlier this month – storming to the National League title. The Red Dragons were pushed to the wire by a free-scoring Notts County – and they will be joining Wrexham in League Two.

However, before Wrexham can make their return to the Football League, they have a pre-season tour of the United States. Wrexham will square off with Manchester United and Chelsea stateside as they prepare for the new campaign.

STōK will be the sponsor of the tour as Wrexham make their first ever visit to the USA.
