Tom Brady Adds Yet Another Team To Portfolio With English Soccer Club

  • Tom Brady has become a minority investor in Birmingham City FC.
  • Brady also has team stakes in the Raiders and Aces, and pro pickleball.
Birmingham City

Tom Brady gifted himself another addition to his expanding pro sports ownership portfolio on Thursday, the seven-time Super Bowl champion’s 46th birthday.

English soccer club Birmingham City FC announced that Brady has purchased a minority stake in the team and will serve as chairman of a new advisory board. 

Last season, Birmingham finished 17th in the second-tier EFL Championship, where it has played since 2011 after being relegated from the Premier League. Brady will be involved in most areas of the club, from sports science to marketing and sponsorship.

Brady’s sports ownership portfolio now includes:

Perhaps the move shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, given Brady’s association with Birmingham’s ownership group, Knighthead Capital Management. The MLP team Brady is a part of is owned by a Knighthead-led group, and the private equity company is a major investor in Hertz, one of his biggest commercial partners.

It’s not the first time Brady has parlayed one investment into another. Earlier this year, Brady’s investment in the Aces quickly led to an ownership stake in the Raiders, both teams owned by Mark Davis.

Looking ahead, the E1 Series that Brady invested in was co-founded by Alejandro Agag, who also founded two other electric racing series in Formula E, an F1-style circuit, and Extreme E, an off-road series. If Brady’s past investment trends are indicative of his strategy, the future Hall of Famer could be looking to cash in on more electric racing properties in the near future.
