US fans can now stream Wrexham National League matches.
Earlier FA Cup games were available through ESPN+. Certain games were even broadcast on ESPN2 as Wrexham fight their way into the FA Cup proper. That performance on TV attracted an average of 89,000 viewers. Remarkably, that was more than the MLS Decision Day broadcast on FS1.
Club owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney advocated broadcasting Wrexham National League games. The reason is simple. It increases the popularity of not only the team, which already has a popular documentary series. It could also increase attention to the National League if American fans have a storyline to follow.
Appropriately, the National League announced National League TV. While it’s currently on a two-week trial, it’s one of the first ways to watch National League games on TV, especially in the United States. Streaming will launch on 10 December 2022, including the ability to stream the Wrexham National League match against Eastleigh.
How to stream Wrexham National League matches
Matchday passes for each round aren’t free, so there’s a price to pay if you sign up to stream National League games. Pricing may also change, as National League streaming is relatively new, regardless of location.
The full launch of National League TV is scheduled for another time. Therefore, this two-week trial will not quite provide the full functionality of National League TV. That said, it does offer the ability to stream Wrexham National League games for its US audience.
As mentioned, this starts on December 10 in Wrexham’s game against Eastleigh. Also note that this is different from the Isuzu FA Trophy. International viewers should be able to watch that via WrexhamPlayer. However, more information on Wrexham streaming options will come in due course.
Wrexham becomes the second favorite team of many football fans in the US
Much of Wrexham’s popularity in the United States is due to the FX/Hulu series Welcome to Wrexham.
Fans of Season 1 of Welcome to Wrexham have received the program with overwhelming praise since its release in August. Reelgood is an aggregator that collects statistics about television streaming. The website claims that the show, starring McElhenney and Reynolds, finished as the seventh most watched show in the United States for the week of Sept. 2.
