Robbie Williams, the English singer, has fulfilled a long-time dream by being elected president of Port Vale, a football club located in the city of Burslem. He has even expressed interest in buying the club and promoting it to compete in League One, the Third Division of football in the UK. Additionally, he aims to create a television show centered around the club.

According to reports, if Williams completes the purchase of the club, he could secure a lucrative broadcast deal, similar to what Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney did with Wrexham. A source mentioned that they have formally approached Robbie to see if he is interested in spearheading a bid, as Port Vale remains one of his greatest loves and it has always been a dream to be more involved.

The club acquired by Reynolds and McElhenney became known worldwide through the television series “Welcome to Wrexham”, which catapulted the institution to stardom. Encouraged by this success, Robbie wants to follow the same steps and make Port Vale an international television phenomenon.

Of course, the main priority is the sporting aspect and being able to get at some point the jump to the Championship, which is the second category of English football. Currently, Vale Port is ranked twentieth out of 24 teams in the League One table, and is avoiding relegation. They must improve if they want to be able to fight for the top positions this season.

Robbie, who will turn 50 on the 13th February, has always expressed his love for Port Vale and even played a friendly match at the same stadium, Vale Park, in 2001. Additionally, he helped design their t-shirts and founded his own US-based football team in 2005, which he called Los Angeles Vale.
