AFC Richmond, Ted Lasso’s fictional soccer team, makes its way to FIFA 23.
You can take control of the team – which made its debut in the Apple TV series – and lead them to glory in Career Mode, Kickoff, Online Friendlies and Online Seasons.
Additionally, a range of AFC Richmond items including kits, manager items and other content will also be available for FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) and Pro Clubs.
Over in FIFA 23’s career mode, Ted Lasso himself (and his moustache) will be available to manage the team.
If mustaches aren’t your thing, you can instead use a real-world manager or your custom character to take control of AFC Richmond.
“I’m truly fortunate and deeply grateful to have had many special moments in my career so far, and I consider this experience to be one of the best of them,” said Emmy Award winner Jason Sudeikis.
“As long time FIFA fans it’s really a dream come true for me and the rest of the boys to bring Ted Lasso and the entire AFC Richmond squad into the latest version of the game.
“Our cast and crew work incredibly hard on this show and we’re flattered that it resonates with so many people.
“We look forward to our fans having the opportunity to play as, play as, and even play against their favorite AFC Richmond characters.”
Emmy-winner Brett Goldstein, who plays AFC Richmond player Roy Kent, also had a few words to say, most of them swear words: “It’s so freaking cool to be at FIFA. I’m not sure if this will help dispel the CGI rumors, but fuck it, it’s totally worth it.
“I look forward to beating my nephew in a game with me as Roy Kent and him as Jamie Tartt. He will be angry.”
FIFA 23 launches September 30th on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Stadia, PS4 and Xbox One. FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition Early Access begins September 27, 2022.
