Tom Brady, the seven-time Super Bowl champion, has become a minority owner of Championship club Birmingham City.
Brady retired from the NFL at the start of the year and admitted he has much to learn about English soccer but plans to be hands-on with his investment in a club that has underachieved in recent years.
Brady is involved with the club’s new owner Knighthood Capital Management LLC as part of his investment portfolio and increasing business empire.
Forbes estimate that Brady earned $45.2 million on and off the field in their 2023 highest-paid athletes list, and he has another $300 million in endorsement income throughout his career.
On top of that, Fox Sports will pay him $375 million over the next decade as their lead color commentator on NFL matches, making him the best-paid sports commentator in history.
Brady also has several lucrative sponsorship deals with the likes of Amazon, Under Armour, Fanatics, EA Sports, Subway and IWC Watches.
Beyond that, Brady has built up a portfolio of investments in the realm of sport and beyond, as just last month, he was unveiled as a team owner in the new electric boat racing competition, the E1 World Championship.
He also sponsors the Hertz Team JOTA race car at the iconic Le Mans 24 Hours.
