Ryan Reynolds & Rob McElhenney: Wrexham owners eye 55,000-capacity Racecourse

Written by on May 1, 2024

It had been hoped the new Kop stand would be ready for the start of the 2024-25 season, but Reynolds and McElhenney have been frustrated by delays to the project.

“I think the thick buttress of bureaucracy is the biggest problem,” said Reynolds.

“I live in New York, Rob lives in LA [Los Angeles], where construction is very different, in as much as they will charge you $10 for every $1 you spend.

“But in Wales, it really is a lot of red tape, and it’s just sort of figuring out ways to tick all those boxes and make sure that every single bureaucrat is happy.”

McElhenney agrees, adding: “It is definitely a comedic point of consternation in the show how often we’re running up against bureaucracy.

“And, of course, safety concerns and things like that, and all those regulations are there in place for a reason, but then there are some things that just seem like hurdles for hurdles’ sake.

“It’s a lot harder to build in the UK than, I found, almost anywhere else in the world.”
