Ted Lasso, the fictional football manager from Apple TV’s hit show, will feature in FIFA 23 – because of course he will. Basically, you’ll be able to take control of his AFC Richmond team in almost all modes, including career, kick-offs, online friendlies, and more. For Ultimate Team players, there will be plenty of things to unlock, including “kits, tifos, and manager items.”
Apart from players like Roy Kent, Jamie Tartt, Sam Obisania, and Danny Rojas, you will also be able to play at AFC Richmond’s home stadium, Nelson Road. “It’s great to be in FIFA. I’m not sure it’s going to help dispel the CGI rumors but it’s totally worth it,” said Brett Goldstein, who plays AFC Richmond player Roy Kent. “I look forward to beating my nephew in a game as Roy Kent and me as Jamie Tartt. He will get angry.”
Actor Jason Sudeikis, who plays the titular gaffer, added: “I’m really fortunate, and deeply grateful, to have had so many special moments in my career so far, and I count this experience as one of them. All the best. As long-time fans of EA Sports FIFA, it’s truly a dream come true for me and the rest of the team to have Ted Lasso and the entire AFC Richmond team in the newest version of the game.”
