Wrexham AFC, the legendary football club hailing from North Wales, embarked on an unforgettable journey to the United States for their preseason tour in the summer of 2023. The team crossed the Atlantic to introduce themselves to their newfound American fanbase. Gravity Grip Socks, Senda’s cutting-edge grip socks category, led the way with their advanced non-slip technology, ensuring maximum agility and mobility by keeping the foot, heel, and ankle securely in place during intense physical activity.
Why Wrexham is so Popular These Days?
The Wrexham's USA tour attendance surpassed 110,000 people. The friendlies in the U.S. included opponents like Chelsea, Manchester United XI, LA Galaxy II, and Philadelphia Union II. But why has the Welsh club gained so much popularity in our country? Founded in 1864, Wrexham AFC is one of the oldest football teams in existence in the world. After a long period of poor sports performance and financial difficulties, the American actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney bought Wrexham AFC in 2020. The Hollywood actors’ takeover received unanimous approval from supporters and meant a turning point in the club’s history. Only two years after the acquisition and after fifteen years, the club was crowned champion of the fifth tier and promoted to the fourth tier of the English National League. The compelling story of the Welsh team and Hollywood has been documented in the TV series Welcome to Wrexham, the critically acclaimed show that chronicles the purchase of Wrexham AFC by Reynolds and McElhenne. The second season has just been released, after a very popular and successful 2022/2023 season.

the Gravity Grip Socks!
The spotlight was on our Gravity Grip Socks during Wrexham’s US tour, marking a significant milestone for our brand. Our socks helped the squads maintain control and stability during games and training sessions. It was a moment of great pride for Senda that our Grip Socks were handpicked for this unforgettable journey.
The two available models— ankle and crew length—provide the necessary ankle stability that avoids slippage and injuries. While the ankle is locked in at all times, their optimal compression helps to promote blood circulation and to have a faster recovery after a hard training session. The non-slip system allows athletes to move with confidence and improve foot traction.
And that's not all if we haven't already mentioned it, our Gravity Grip Socks also come with additional features that set them apart from the rest. With feautres like Gravity Technology, Breathability System, and Ergonomic Design, you can be sure you're getting top-notch performance and comfort.
