The fictional trainer Ted Lasso from the series of the same name – as well as his fictional football team AFC Richmond – may be in Fifa 23.
A photo of actor Jason Sudeikis, who plays Ted Lasso, was posted via the series’ official Twitter account, which refers to games by naming Nintendo mascot Mario.
Although Fifa is not mentioned in this, the official Fifa account reacted to the tweet with squinting eyes. Afterwards, the fictional football team AFC Richmond from the series was mentioned on the official Fifa site for a short period, although this has since been removed.
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’ will appear on Nintendo Switch with only minimal innovations, including the women’s football leagues.
