NFL legend Tom Brady has become a minority owner of Birmingham City, a club in English soccer's second-tier Championship.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback has entered into a partnership with Birmingham's owners, Knighthead Capital Management LLC and he will become chairman of the advisory board at the club.
There Brady will, according to a statement from Birmingham, "apply his extensive leadership experience and expertise across several components of the club,
including working alongside the sports science department to advise on health, nutrition, wellness, and recovery systems and programs."
He retired from NFL in February 2023, after 23 seasons in the game where he won the Super Bowl seven times,
and was named MVP five times establishing himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the sport.
The announcement sees Brady become the second newly retired NFL star to take an interest in English football in the last three months
after JJ Watt became a minority investor in Premier League side Burnley on May 1.
