It was not all work for Brady as he toured the country.

Tom Brady is in Asia as part of a promotional tour with Under Armour, and if the quarterback has his way, he would return for a National Football League game in the future. Brady will visit Japan to continue to promote his performance-enhancing pyjamas.

"We had an opportunity, I think, 10 years ago and my team was going to play here", Brady said, according to Boston.com.

The New England Patriots were scheduled to face the Seattle Seahawks in a 2007 preseason game in China, but the game was ultimately canceled.

But China is a huge market, so Brady's idea isn't outlandish, especially with the league making a strong effort in recent years to appeal to an global audience.

Five-time Super Bowl victor Tom Brady hopes to one day play an American football game in China, he said on Sunday, on a visit aimed at promoting the sport in a huge potential market.

Brady, a four-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player, rallied his Patriots to a stunning comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in February to win Super Bowl 51.

The NFL has played exhibition or regular-season games in nine different countries, but China isn't one of them. "The tour will be rewarding for me as I experience Shanghai, Beijing and Tokyo".

The sport lags behind soccer and basketball in China, but the National Football League is pushing tie-ups with more than a dozen platforms on regular television and online to help reach viewers.
