    Wrexham AFC’s U.S. Tour heads to Dignity Health Sports Park for a meeting with Galaxy II
    • May 1, 2023

    Wrexham AFC, the lower division club in the English football league system that garnered publicity after actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney took over as owners in 2020, is coming to Dignity Health Sports Park.

    Wrexham, who recently won promotion to the Premier League’s fourth-tier League Two, will face L.A. Galaxy II, the reserve team of the Galaxy, July 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Dignity Health Sports Park.

    Tickets go on sale Thursday.

    Galaxy II is in its first season in the MLS Next Pro and usually plays its home games in the DHSP Track and Field Stadium. The roster is mostly made up of young first team and players coming up from the academy system.

    Wrexham AFC was founded in 1864. The Wales-based club earned its first promotion to League Two since 2007-08. The club finished with 111 points, winning 34 goals of a 46-game schedule and scoring 116 goals.

    “We’re looking forward to our U.S. Tour as we gear up for our return to the EFL,” Wrexham coach Phil Parkinson said in a statement. “We’ve enjoyed meeting supporters who have traveled over from America to visit us this season, and it will be a fantastic occasion to play against American opposition in front of more of these new fans.”

    The club was highlighted in a recent documentary series “Welcome to Wrexham” which aired on FX.

    Wrexham’s U.S. Tour will also include stops in North Carolina for a meeting with Chelsea July 19 and Manchester United July 25 in San Diego.
