Wrexham to face Chelsea in exciting pre-season match during anticipated US tour

    Wrexham will play Chelsea in a pre-season friendly on 19 July as part of their US tour.

    The National League leaders, owned by Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, will face the Premier League side at Kenan Stadium at the University of North Carolina.

    This is the latest coup from Wrexham, who recently announced that they will also play Manchester United in San Diego on 25 July.

    Chelsea were already scheduled to be in the US for the Premier League Summer Series, playing Brighton & Hove Albion on July 22 in Philadelphia, Newcastle United on July 26 in Atlanta and Fulham on July 30 near Washington.

    Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson told the club’s official website: “Our tour of the United States will be an exciting part of the summer preparations for the new season and we will all be looking forward to it in July.

    “The opportunity to play against a team of Chelsea’s caliber at Kenan Stadium in North Carolina will be an amazing challenge for our players and an important part of our preparation for the 2023-24 season.

    “We look forward to meeting the fans who supported us so passionately from afar this season at the renowned track and field stadium.”

    Wrexham are four points clear of second-place Notts County with two games left in the National League and will secure promotion to League Two after beating Boreham Wood on Saturday.
