Ted Lasso, Richmond AFC in EA Sports FIFA 23

Ted Lasso is now in play. Electronic Arts and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced Wednesday that AFC Richmond, the team led by the affable Lasso in the hit Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso, will join multiple players in the upcoming EA Sports FIFA 23 video game Game modes will be available.

A number of AFC Richmond items including kits, tifos, manager items and other content may also be available to unlock.

Players can also play as Lasso, the unlikely American AFC Richmond manager, portrayed by Jason Sudeikis, who is in charge of Richmond or another team in career mode.

Players can also create their own manager or choose a real licensed manager to take control of AFC Richmond or create a player and join the AFC Richmond roster in a league of their choice.

“I’m really happy and deeply grateful that I’ve had many special moments in my career so far and I consider this experience to be one of the best of them,” Sudeikis said in a statement. “As long-time fans of EA Sports FIFA, bringing Ted Lasso and the entire AFC Richmond squad to the latest version of the game is truly a dream come true for me and the rest of the community.
