Accounts show Wrexham owe £9m to their owners meaning their investment into the club has almost doubled since last year.

Wrexham added that their turnover had almost doubled while losses increased by £2.2m to £5.1m. The club’s pay roll had also risen from £6.9m, the highest in League Two.

A statement posted on the official club website stated the losses should not be repeated as a result of the extra income the club can generate as a result of their spending.


A club statement read: “The financial losses suffered by the club since the takeover shouldn’t be repeated, with income generated by the club now sufficient to meet the operational costs of the club going forward.”

It added: “These losses were deemed necessary to allow the club to maximise its full potential in the shortest time practically possible.

“The club is under no immediate pressure to repay these loans at the expense of the progress we seek to achieve and further financial support will be provided/secured to support the capital expenditure projects the club is currently planning, which includes increasing the capacity of The Racecourse Ground and the development of a training facility for all the club’s teams.

“These will significantly increase again for the year ending June 30, 2024, following promotion and the continued popularity of Welcome to Wrexham.”
