SPONSOR: Wrexham name TikTok as new sponsor
Wrexham have announced TikTok as their new commercial shirt sponsor for the next two seasons.
The Welsh club will have the TikTok emblazoned on their shirts as they aim to return to the football league.
Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney - famous actors from the United States - took control of the club back in February.
Earlier on this year, they announced a new behind the scenes documentary called "Welcome to Wrexham".
Obviously, their involvement at the club has attracted the growing social media company to sponsor the club.

Humphrey Ker, Executive Director at Wrexham AFC, said: “We were blown away by the ideas that TikTok had for their partnership with the Club.
“The opportunity to access the full breadth of their social reach creates a community-building opportunity many will envy.
“Our soon-to-be-launched official TikTok account will feature all those involved at the Club, including both Rob and Ryan.
“To have TikTok on the front of our shirts is a great coup and we are sure it will be popular among our fanbase, as well as with those who are active on TikTok.”
Nick Tran, Global Head of Marketing at TikTok, said: “TikTok is uniquely positioned at the centre of entertainment, technology and the creator community to help bring Wrexham AFC’s story to life to global audiences.
“With the growth of football clubs, players and trends on TikTok, joining Rob and Ryan in returning Wrexham AFC to the English Football League was a natural choice for us.
“We are proud to play a small part in championing the return of Wrexham AFC to the top-flight of football and sharing the journey with the town of Wrexham, our community, and fans everywhere, in ways only TikTok can.”
