EA has confirmed that Ted Lasso and his team AFC Richmond are in Fifa 23.
There were rumors of the addition of the fictional coach and his football team to Fifa 23 yesterday after a social media post by actor Jason Sudeikis, but EA has now confirmed it.
Lasso is a playable manager in the game’s career mode. In addition, AFC Richmond can be controlled in the Premier League or any other tournament in career mode.
In addition, in Ultimate Team you can choose to play in the clothing of AFC Richmond. Both Ted Lasso and Coach Beard are also selectable as players in these modes. All AFC Richmond content can be unlocked in FUT by completing various objectives.
In the Apple TV series Ted Lasso, the titular protagonist, an American football coach, travels to England to train a football club.
Fifa 23 will be available September 30 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, Google Stadia, and PC. A ‘Legacy Edition’ is coming to Nintendo Switch with only minimal innovations, including the women’s football leagues.
