Blake Lively helps dress up Ryan Reynolds' soccer team

A lookbook displays a number of fashion-forward kit designs.
Blake Lively's non-alcoholic sparkling mixer brand Betty Buzz joined Ryan Reynolds' Welsh soccer club Wrexham AFC to sponsor the team's training kits.

Blake Lively is joining Ryan Reynolds' soccer team. 

The actress' brand of non-alcoholic sparkling mixers, Betty Buzz, is now an official training kit sponsor of the Welsh soccer club Wrexham AFC, co-owned by Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

The Vancouver-born actor had previously teamed up with Lively's Betty Buzz for his "cult classic cocktail" video in celebration of Rex Manning Day. 

Both Reynolds and Lively shared the news on social media on May 24, announcing the sponsorship with a glimpse into the design process of the team's newest kits.

A video lookbook jokingly shows that the initial design was a Met Gala-worthy gown with a train displaying the Wrexham FC logo. Lively narrates the video as it reveals other few fashion-forward designs before settling on the final look. 

"It's function meets more function," she says as the lookbook flips to a T-shirt bearing the Betty Buzz logo. "Plus it accessorizes well."

Reynolds was compared to Welsh royalty following a donation to another Wrexham soccer team, which was fundraising for new training kits. To honour the actor's contribution, the team's new purple kits feature a small Deadpool logo on the sleeve.
