WREXHAM AFC will be in the new FIFA 22 computer game.

Owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney confirmed the news via the club's Twitter account this afternoon.

The Hollywood actors revealed that Wrexham will be among the teams that can be selected under 'Rest of World' during an amusing video offering viewers "a little geography lesson".

The club tweet states: "This is a statement from the press office of Wrexham AFC regarding #FIFA22

"We're in the game. Ends."

EA replied with "welcome lads".

In the video, Rob said: "Our first season as Wrexham owners has begun yet many people still don't know where Wales is."

"That's right Rob", responds Ryan. "So we're here with a little geography lesson."

Rob says that many people think Wales is in England, before jokingly stating that it is in "a region known as... rest of world".

Ryan ends by saying Wrexham is "a proud team" that is "honoured" to be in the new edition of the popular computer game.
