Two men stand smiling in the middle of a football stadium, one holding a microphone.

About two years ago, Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds bought Wrexham, a Welsh football club that’s the third oldest professional football club in the world. The two Hollywood actors teamed up to transform the club, never having worked together before and with no experience running a football club at all.

“It’s an underdog story,” says Reynolds in the trailer released Wednesday.

The touching trailer gives a glimpse into the docuseries, set to be released exclusively on Disney+. According to Disney, the series follows McElhenney and Reynolds’ journey but also tells the story of Wrexham itself, a North Welsh town, a tight-knit community, their pride in football, and the dreams of one team.

Welcome to Wrexham launches in Aug. 25 on Disney+ in the UK. International details TBC.
