The Ted Lasso Twitter account had teased to which the character came FIFA 23 and now Electronic Arts has confirmed it in a new trailer. The video in question shows Lasso as well as his AFC Richmond team all digitally recreated in EA’s upcoming soccer game a week or so before players can see them in-game for themselves.
As explained on EA’s website, Lasso and Coach Beard will be in the game as coaches, while Jamie Tartt, Dani Rojas, Sam Obisanya, Roy Kent and Isaac McAdoo will all be playable characters. Nelson Road, the team’s home ground, is also one of the arenas.
Lasso is also technically playable as he will be in career mode. AFC Richmond players can also be deployed in the Premier League and any of the other playable career mode leagues such as Kick-Off, Online Friendlies and Online Seasons. The Greyhounds will also be on the Ultimate Team, and Lasso and Coach Beard will even be selectable managers. That Ted Lasso content will all be easily accessible through challenges and certain objectives.
