Tom Brady will attend a Birmingham City fixture during the early weeks of the season – possibly as soon as Saturday’s clash with Leeds at St Andrew’s.

The NFL great, a seven-time winner of the Super Bowl, became a co-owner of Blues earlier this month thanks to an existing relationship with the club’s new American owners. 

He has been sharing his support for Blues on social media and will soon have the chance to see his new project in the flesh.

Brady is to chair an advisory board working with Blues chiefs.

On joining the club, Brady said: ‘Birmingham City is an iconic club with so much history and passion and to be part of the Blues is a real honour for me.

‘BCFC is built on teamwork and determination and I’m excited to work alongside the board, management and players to make our Second City club second to none.

‘I’ve been part of some amazing teams in my day, and I’m looking forward to applying my perspective to create that same success here in Birmingham.’

Birmingham had suffered financial uncertainty for some time before the Knighthead Capital takeover but the arrival of new ownership, with former Manchester City man Garry Cook installed as chief executive, has brought cautious optimism.

Blues have reinvested the majority of the £6.5million they received for Tahith Chong and Jobe Bellingham, signing Dion Sanderson, Lee Buchanan, Ethan Laird, Krystian Bielik, Tyler Roberts and Siriki Dembele, under the stewardship of John Eustace. 

Eustace is building a reputation as one of the most promising young coaches in the country.
