The A-lister wants to make the tiny Welsh outfit a household name across the planet with a range of household goods, clothes and toys.

He has trademarked’ Wrexham FC 1864’ and ‘Wrexham FC’ in the UK, plus ‘Wrexham is the Name’ and ‘Wrexham FC 1864’ in the US.

And he has an application for ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ to be trademarked with the US Patent and Trademark Office currently being examined.

The protection in the UK has been granted by the Intellectual Property Office and will stay in place for ten years.

His holding firm R.R. McReynolds Company LLC asked for the rights to market goods in five different classes.

These include flogging gear like clothes and sportswear, luggage, games and toys and the making of TV programmes, laying on football coaching services.

The star was in the UK this week to see Wrexham’s dramatic win over promotion rivals Notts County on Easter Monday.

The Hollywood actor was at the Racecourse Ground alongside co-owner Rob McElhenney to watch Wrexham clinch a thrilling 3-2 victory after goalkeeper Ben Foster made a 97th-minute penalty save.

The pair bought the club in 2020.

The win leaves Wrexham on the verge of clinching the single automatic promotion spot to League Two and a return to the Football League for the first time since relegation in 2008, and means Notts County will need to go through the play-offs despite amassing more than 100 points this season.
