It looks like Ted Lasso and AFC Richmond are coming to FIFA 23 2

If FIFA 23’s 700+ plus real-life football clubs somehow aren’t enough to be getting on with, you can sling another one onto the pile, this time from the realm of fiction, with all signs pointing to an appearance from Ted Lasso’s decidedly imaginary AFC Richmond in this year’s game.

Hints of an impending crossover with the award-winning Apple TV+ comedy series first emerged last week, when AFC Richmond – the fictional London team managed by Ted Lasso in the show – briefly appeared on EA’s official FIFA ratings database website before being removed.

That might have been the end of it, if it wasn’t for a new image shared by the official Ted Lasso Twitter account showing what appears to be Ted Lasso actor Jason Sudeikis , albeit from behind ensconced in the FIFA team’s facial capture rig – used to capture the real-world likeness of players (and, for the first time this year, managers) for use in-game.

“Look out, Mario! You’re not the only pixelated man with a moustache who never knows where the tube is taking him,” read the text accompanying the image”. The official FIFA Twitter account then responded with a stare-y eyed emoji, all but sealing the deal for a Ted Lasso cameo in this year’s FIFA 23.

All will be revealed when FIFA 23 launches for Ultimate Edition purchasers on 27th September ahead of its general release on 30th September. Ted Lasso, for its part, is expected to make a return to Apple TV+ for Season 3 before the end of this year.
