‘Ted Lasso’ is coming to ‘FIFA 23’ with AFC Richmond

EA has announced that Apple TV‘s Ted Lasso is coming to FIFA 23, with the fictional manager and his team – AFC Richmond – appearing at launch.

Ted Lasso, played by Jason Sudeikis in the show of the same name, will be a selectable manager of AFC Richmond in FIFA 23‘s career mode. However, fans will be able to take Lasso’s expertise to whichever club suits them.

As for AFC Richmond, players can manage the team with Lasso or another manager, including real-world managers or a custom-made character. The squad will be joined by several of its star players – Roy Kent, Jamie Tartt, Sam Obisanya and Dani Rojas – and its home stadium of Nelson Road will also appear in FIFA 23.

“It’s so fucking cool to be in FIFA” shared Brett Goldstein, who plays Kent in the show. “I’m not sure this is going to help dispel the CGI rumours but fuck it, totally worth it. I look forward to beating my nephew in a game with me as Roy Kent and him as Jamie Tartt. He’s gonna be furious.”
