WREXHAM AFC have announced Blake Lively's company, Betty Buzz, as it's new training kit sponsor for the upcoming season.

Blake, who has links to the Reds through husband Ryan Reynolds, launched her sparkling beverage company in 2021 and today (May 24) it was announced as the official training kit sponsor of Wrexham AFC.

The brand will feature on kit for both the men's and women's sides for the 2023/24 season.

The Reds were brought to prominence in the United States following the purchase of the club by Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds in 2021, and the unveiling of their television series documenting the team and community, Welcome to Wrexham.

Betty Buzz will be a featured sponsor on the team’s training kits and remain on the sleeve for the women’s team.

The new training kits will be available for purchase soon on the Wrexham AFC website and in-store at the Racecourse Ground.

Betty Buzz Founder Blake Lively said, “The owners of Wrexham AFC reached out to me through official channels. Our team had, of course, heard of Wrexham AFC but once we officially learned about their refreshing vision, we knew it was the right official fit for our refreshing sparkling beverage. Officially.”

Wrexham AFC co-chairmen Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds said: “Betty Buzz pairs well with any beverage - whether it’s Ryan’s Aviation Gin or Rob’s Four Walls Whiskey. But if any of you pair it with Rob’s Four Walls Whiskey, Ryan will hunt you down and make you regret that choice. You can also just drink it alone! Anything but pairing it with Rob’s delicious whiskey.”


Betty Buzz will also be taking over the naming rights of the hospitality suite used by the co-chairmen at the Racecourse Ground, set to be redesigned this June.

Additionally, Betty Buzz will be a traveling sponsor of the Wrexham AFC American tour – the first time in the club’s history that the first team squad will travel to the United States – offering sample opportunities in and around all stadium locations.

Wrexham AFC Executive Director Humphrey Ker said: “We are delighted to expand Betty Buzz’s involvement, as they become the training wear sponsor for all the adult teams at the club. Betty Buzz is a perfect partner for the club, locally, nationally and internationally with their every increasing distribution.”
