With the award winning Apple TV show or, more commonly, The English Football Club AFC Richmond will be a playable team in EA Sports FIFA 23 video game.
Watch the trailer above, and see what is going on in the show below.
I’m very fortunate and so much grateful to have had so many special moments in my career – and I think it’s the best in the best of my life, said Jason Sudeikis, in a statement released by the EA. As longtime fans of EA Sports FIFA, having Ted Lasso and entire AFC Richmond squad become an integral part of the new game is truly a dream for me and the rest of the fellas.
This popular video game will be accompanied by real-life clubs, but in the FIFA 23, Lasso, Coach Beard and players Jamie Tartt, Dani Rojas, Sam Obisanya, Roy Kent and Isaac McAdoo will also enter the action with the players home ground, Nelson Road.
This game will allow players to elect Lasso to become a playable manager in Career Mode. There’s another option to get Richmond from the AFC by swapping the club into a Premier League or any other playable Career Mode league.
In the announcement, the Emmy-winning actor Brett Goldstein said that it’s really cool to be in FIFA. I’m not sure this will help dispel the CGI rumors but f*ck it – totally worth it. (Goldstein said on the Internet conspiracy theory that the Kent character is rather a CGI than a human actor.)
FIFA 23 launches worldwide September 30 – Xbox One, Xbox X|S, Xbox Xbox One, Sony / PlayStation5, Xbox Series, Stadia, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
AFC Richmond EA FIFA 23 team with Ted Lasso is the ultimate team. EA Sports The Stadion Ted Lasso is the closest. EA
