New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his first visit to China over the weekend and said he hopes to come back someday for an NFL game.

“My dream is to play a game here in China someday,” Brady said. “We had an opportunity, I think, 10 years ago, and my team was going to play here, and unfortunately it didn’t work out. But one day I hope that there are many games here, and over the course of a year, because it’s such a great sport and because I love it so much, to bring that here and to bring the discipline and incredible strategy involved.”

The Patriots were slated to face the Seattle Seahawks in a 2007 preseason game, but the contest was canceled as the NFL chose to focus on the debut of regular-season games in London, which began later that season.

Brady, whose trip was part of a promotional tour for Under Armour, posted a photo on Instagram of him throwing a football on the Great Wall.
