Tom Brady is serenaded by Birmingham City fans at a local pub as the NFL legend arrives to watch the Blues take on Leeds United in his first appearance at St Andrews
Tom Brady was serenaded by Birmingham City fans at a local pub as he flew out to watch the Blues take on Leeds United on Saturday.
The NFL legend became part owner of Blues earlier this month through an existing relationship with the club’s new American owners.
After missing Birmingham’s 1-1 draw with Swansea on Matchday 1 of the Championship and their 2-0 victory over Cheltenham in the EFL Cup, Brady has flown out for his first home game.
Brady has now been spotted in a local pub, with Birmingham fans singing to him as he soaks up the atmosphere ahead of the game.
Take from Twitter, he posted a picture on a plane earlier as he wrote: ‘Plans before kick off guys? Meet at St. Andrew’s.

This led Birmingham’s official account to reply: ‘See you soon, Tom!’.
And it looks like Brady found plans ahead of the clash, being recorded at a local pub surrounded by Blues fans as they sing to him.
Speaking after joining the club, Brady said: “Birmingham City are an iconic club with so much history and passion and being part of the Blues is a real honor for me.”
“BCFC is all about teamwork and determination and I am delighted to be working alongside the board, management and players to make our Second City club a club like no other.”
“I’ve been on some amazing teams in my day, and I can’t wait to apply my perspective to create that same success here in Birmingham.”
The former Premier League side have struggled financially in recent years, but the arrival of new owners at St Andrews has brought optimism to Birmingham fans.
Although Jobe Bellingham and Tahith Chong were sold in the summer, there have been several reinforcements as the Blues look to finish strong in the Championship.
They will be hoping Brady can prove to be a lucky charm as they take on newly relegated Leeds United on Saturday.
