EA licenses all sorts of real leagues and teams for its football series. But this time FIFA 23 also acts as a special fan service: Ted Lasso is in the football game.
With Ted Lasso, Apple has gotten a real genius for its in-house streaming service, Apple TV+. The comedy format has won numerous awards and is extremely popular around the world. It’s no wonder that EA has now opened its eyes.
The cult coach Ted Lasso and his team, AFC Richmond, are offered as a special fan service in FIFA 23. This club can be used in many game modes – career, kick-off, or online friendlies, or online seasons.
As such, there are various items from the FIFA Ultimate Team and the Pro Clubs to get unlocked: jerseys, choreos, manager items and more.
Ted Lasso, a popular character of Jason Sudeikis, is available in career mode to select a representative of the AFC of Richmond. You can train your club or any other team your choice by visiting your favorite mustachioed coach. You can also choose an individual or a real world manager who’s licensed or a real-world manager to take over AFC Richmond, or a player and join the AFC Richmond squad in your choice.
The AFC Richmond is in the Rest of the World category and includes team players Roy Kent, Jamie Tartt, Sam Obisanya and Dani Rojas. The legend’s Greyhounds stadium Nelson Road was specially designed for FIFA 23.
