Kicking & Screening goes to Wrexham

By Anonymous (not verified), November 10, 2022

This Sunday, K+S will present a special screening of SOCCERTOWN, USA at the Wal Goch Festival in…Wrexham, Wales.

Yes, that Wrexham. Home of Wrexham AFC, famously owned by Hollywooders Ryan Reynolds and Rob McIlhenny and subject of the hit series Welcome to Wrexham.

  • The Wal Goch Festival is in its first year and is part of the Welsh celebration of their first World Cup appearance since 1958. Of course, they will face the US in their World Cup opener. So the screening will explore American soccer culture to help the Welsh fans prepare and get excited.

SOCCERTOWN, USA, which previously screened at K+S New York, is about the long history of Kearny, New Jersey, where US World Cup teammates Tony Meola, John Harkes, and Tab Ramos grew up together.


Special Panel Discussion

Following the screening, K+S co-director Oliver Parman will host a panel discussion about American soccer culture. The expert panel includes:

  • Jesse Marsch, Leeds United manager and former longtime MLS player

  • Tom McCabe, SOCCERTOWN, USA producer and soccer historian

  • Owain Fon Williams, former Welsh international

  • Megan Feringa (moderator), American-born Welsh soccer journalist
