Seems like soccer has a new fan.

Bulls star and Chicago native Dwyane Wade attended Wednesday’s MLS All-Star Game at Soldier Field in Chicago, where the league’s best lost to Real Madrid 4-2 in a shootout.

Wade did an interview with FOX during the broadcast and discussed, among other things, his desire to expose the sport to his sons, who were also in attendance.

Wade also found time to chat with MLS commissioner Don Garber, who must have been happy to have him:

Wade is the latest NBA superstar to express interest in soccer. Kobe Bryant is a veritable superfan of the sport, having spent part of his childhood in Italy and frequently attending matches and taking part in other soccer-related events. LeBron James also famously attended the 2014 World Cup final in Brazil, and Steve Nash has made no secret of his fandom.
