Ted Lasso and his team AFC Richmond will officially be part of FIFA 23. EA Sports announced this via a trailer showing details of its partnership with the popular Apple TV+ show.
Official announcement on EA website Read: “…Ted Russo, Coach Beard, and a team including Jamie Tate, Danny Rojas, Sam Obisanya, Roy Kent and Isaac McCain The superstars of AFC Richmond, including Du, will be truly integrated into FIFA 23, the home of the club, with Nelson Road.” The video ends with Jason Sudekis’ voice in the background, “EA Sports, I’m at the game,” which is the most coaching lasso thing ever.
AFC Richmond will play in Career Mode, Online Friendly, Kickoff and Online Seasons. Players can also choose Richmond’s Nelson Road Stadium in either mode. In FIFA Ultimate Team, you’ll be able to customize your jersey and TIFO, and choose between Coach Lasso and Coach Beard to lead your team as manager. Ted Lasso has recently won multiple Emmys, and the series is a worldwide hit.
There are many other additions and changes to the game that look very exciting. The new HyperMotion2 technology used in the game promises to provide a realistic experience when players push, dribble and move without the ball. Even more exciting, Marvel will also design special player cards for FIFA 23 Ultimate Team mode. These will celebrate the iconic players who became the club’s heroes, and when the World Cup mode is added later this year, each of these heroes will also receive an individually illustrated version.
Career Mode in FIFA 23 will include an RPG-style personality points system. Additionally, EA has tweaked Ultimate Team to include new game modes and an improved chemistry system. The Croatian national football team will also return to the field after 11 years.
FIFA 23 will launch on all major platforms on September 26, 2022.
