It's been a crazy year but Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds And Rob McElhenney taking over the welsh soccer team Wrexham, is one of the crazier storylines of 2020.

Can Wrexham reach the Premier League?

Despite being based in Wales, Wrexham play in the English soccer pyramid. They sit in 14th position position of the Conference Premier, the fifth division in the country, four rungs below the English Premier League.

With the takeover due to be completed soon, one British bookmaker has priced the club at 20/1 to have reached the Premier League by 2026. That implies a 4.8% chance that the Red Dragons make the Premier League.

To win the bet Wrexham would need to achieve four promotions in the next five and a half seasons. That's a tough ask and it's something which hasn't been done before.

Bournemouth managed to get promoted from League Two (one league above the Conference Premier) to the Premier League with 3 promotions in 6 years from 2009/10 to 2015/16, and this feat would go one step beyond that the Cherries managed under Eddie Lowe.
