The Melnyk family, owners of the team since 2003, have set May 15 as the deadline to make an offer. Since the death of Eugene Melnyk in March 2022, the team’s former owner, the situation has been somewhat uncertain as to the new directions.

If the Remington Group succeeds in buying the franchise, Reynolds understands that it’s important for the organization to play an important role in the community. That’s the approach he took alongside actor Rob McElhenney with Wrexham.
