The successful Apple TV series Ted Lasso reached a lot of football fans. After Jason Sudeikis teased us on his Ted Lasso Twitter account, EA has confirmed the beloved character to be in FIFA 23. We can play with AFC Richmond in Career Mode!
Thanks to a Tweet from actor Jason Sudeikes, we already knew that Ted Lasso will come to FIFA 23. Ted Lasso is an Apple original series in which an American Football coach is being installed as a football manager in the UK. As part of a power struggle in the club's management, Rebecca Welton hired Ted with the hope that he will ruin the club completely. After Ted wasn't that bad at all, he began to be more and more successful with AFC Richmond. It's a hilarious show, and we can recommend it to all football fans.
Ted Lasso Will Be In FIFA 23
On social media, there were multiple pictures of Jason Sudeikis and the Ted Lasso cast being part of face capturings, like they're used for face scans by EA Sports. FIFA and Ted Lasso fans are now hyped for the collaboration, because this is something we have never seen before in a FIFA game.
