Los Angeles FC owner Will Ferrell has called for a match with fellow Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds’ Wrexham.

Actor and comedian Ferrell was trying out providing commentary for a LA FC match last night when he made the comments.

His co-commentator asked him: “You did a movie with Ryan Reynolds coming out on Christmas, he’s now involved with Wrexham. [Jason] Sudeikis is involved with Ted Lasso. You feel like you started something here?”

Will Ferrell answered: “I feel that I am a catalyst in that regard, and I think Ted’s team, Ryan’s team, and LA FC should try and play each other at some point. Like a three-team tournament.”

Ted Lasso’s team, AFC Richmond, are a fictional team based in Richmond upon Thames, London – leaving a match between LA FC and Wrexham as the only real-world option.

LA FC are currently in 16th place in the Major League Soccer league while Wrexham are in 8th place in the National League, the fifth tier of the English pyramid.

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney bought Wrexham in February and attended their first home match at the Racecourse over the weekend.
