Wrexham captain Ben Tozer has opened up on the team’s trip to Las Vegas after their promotion from the National League to the EFL.
Tozer and the gang won the league, meaning that Wrexham will play league football for the first time in 15 years, but also that the team would be flown off on a whirlwind break to Vegas, paid for by the club’s owners Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds.
Now, ordinarily what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but that isn’t going to be the case this time, as Tozer has already told talkSPORT some of the details.
The captain added some meat to the bones of what everyone has seen on social media, starting with a slight disappointment about the journey.
“The flight wasn’t direct, which was the only hitch, apart from that we can’t complain,” he said.
“We got there Thursday dinner time, they took us to Hakkasan for dinner which was amazing and then we went to Hakkasan Nightclub and they treated us to the best tables and it was just insane really. Almost everything was insane.
“The next day they took us to Wet Republic Pool Party which was again the best tables and the best layout for us and everything was free, then in the evening was Omnia Nightclub and four of us got to go up on stage with Steve Aoki.
“The next day was Marquee Pool Party followed by dinner out on the balcony at the Bellagio then we were at XS Nightclub where The Chainsmokers were playing, again everything was the best treatment, it was outrageous.
“Teo Pool Party followed by Teo Nightclub then we had to get up and go in the morning.”
As with all good things, it had to come to an end, but it’s not likely that any of the team will forget it in a hurry.
That’s if they remember any of it, anyway.
Explaining more about their four-day excursion, Tozer continued: “At the Bellagio [there was an ice sculpture] honestly the treatment we’ve had has been almost like royalty, it’s been so surreal and the owners are just incredible.
“There have been talks about the owners for next time with a possible private jet.
“We had the best security, even if we wanted to go to the toilet they would take us.
“I was like ‘no chance’ I wanted to get in the mix but that was the sort of treatment we had, it was so bizarre."
Of the club’s celebrity owners, Tozer concluded: “The honesty and the personable bits they’re doing around the town, I believe we’ve got the best owners in the world, the way that they are.
“They honour everything that they say and they don’t say it flippantly, so far they’ve backed everything they’ve said up.”Featured Image Credit: Instagram/BenTozer4
