Ted Lasso and AFC Richmond will be in FIFA 23

It’s been officially confirmed that everyone’s favorite mustachioed American soccer coach will be starring in the FIFA video game series this year. After some speculation over the past few weeks, a new tweet from Ted Lasso himself teased Tuesday’s announcement, before EA guaranteed it on Wednesday.

It’s time to BELIEVE. Ted Lasso and AFC Richmond will be a playable team in FIFA 23, in several different game modes including Kick Off, Career Mode and even Ultimate Team. Lasso referenced Mario in his caption and appeared to use face-scanning technology to create a video game likeness of himself. While he didn’t directly say what video game it was himself, EA Sports FIFA essentially commented on the post to make sure Ted Lasso would make an appearance in FIFA 23 in some way. The official confirmation came just a day later when EA Sports FIFA made an announcement video.

In Kick-Off, players will be able to use AFC Richmond and even play at the Greyhounds’ home ground, Nelson Road, and the club will also be playable in online friendlies and online seasons. In Ultimate Team, AFC Richmond jerseys, TIFOs, and other accessories will be available through Objectives and Challenges. Players can also play as Ted Lasso themselves in Career Mode, or use Ted or Coach Beard in Ultimate Team.

How great will it be to get into a transfer deal and hear Ted Lasso negotiate as he tries to sign Gio Reyna? Personally, we can’t wait to see a cutscene in the infamous dressing room or hear one of Ted’s amazing speeches. Being able to play with the full squad including Sam Obisanya, Jamie Tartt and of course Roy Kent will be amazing because if there’s anyone who deserves 99 aggression it’s definitely Roy Kent.
