The Racecourse Ground hosted its first Football League game in 15 years, following their team’s victorious campaign in the National League last season. However, the debut championship game did not turn out as owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney might have hoped. As Wrexham faced a disappointing 3-5 defeat at home against MK Dons. Nevertheless, the eight-goal thriller in North Wales certainly kept the fans thoroughly entertained.

“More than anything, the one word I would use is emotional,Reynolds told Sky Sports ahead of the clash. “It’s really emotional. A lot of blood was spilled on this field the last couple of years, with Rob and I involved with the club, It never fails to completely take my breath away when I step out into the Racecourse Ground. It’s a church.” The return to League Two is an emotional moment for both owners and fans.

Albeit they lost, but the excitement and pride of owners and the joy and enthusiasm of fans create a special sense of unity and camaraderie. The Welsh club has become one of the most famous and talked-about teams in the world for the past few years. It would be interesting to see how they perform in this season. Whether they can live up to people’s hopes and expectations.
