Excitement is building at Birmingham City with their new co-owner NFL great Tom Brady due to see his team play against Leeds United today (Saturday, August 12).
He tweeted that he was on his way to St Andrew’s Stadium this morning, saying: “Any plans before kick off guys.”
In light of the seven-time winner of the Super Bowl visiting Birmingham, we’ve taken a look at a few places he may choose to hang out either before or after the game.
Here’s nine suggestions of places for Tom Brady to visit and things to do has he visits St Andrews:
1. Enjoy a pre-match drink in near St Andrews in Digbeth or Small Heath
Blues fans often head to the bars around Digbeth and Small Heath before a game. The Bullring Tavern has been a popular spot, along with the Roost pub on Cattell Road, where Ed Sheeran played pool with Jaykae, and the Cricketers Arms in St Andrews Shopping Park.
2. Have selfie at the Jude Bellingham mural
Like many a proud Blues fan, we recommend Tom takes a few minutes to get a selfie with the impressive Jude Bellingham mural by St Andrews.
3. Buy a Peaky Blinders hat
Bluenoses are a stylish bunch, and you will often see them about town with a Peaky Blinders-style cap. After all, St Andrews is one of the first places mentioned in the world famous TV series based on the infamous Brummie gang. The Hat Man on Stephenson Street in the city centre has a huge selection.
4. Pay tribute to Arthur
Gone, but never forgotten, Blues fans carry the memory of young Arthur Labinjo Hughes close to their hearts after his tragic death at the hands of his mum and step dad when he was just six years old. The club reguary hold matches in his memory and raise funds for the NSPCC in Birmingham.
