Richmond AFC from ‘Ted Lasso’ will feature in FIFA 23

Ever wanted to see how Danny Rojas would fair against the world’s best? Well now you can in FIFA 23.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced the arrival of AFC Richmond to FIFA 23, with fans able to authentically take control of their favourite club across multiple game modes including Career Mode, Kickoff, Online Friendlies, and Online Seasons.

A number of AFC Richmond items including kits, tifos, Manager items, and other content will also be available to unlock across FIFA Ultimate Team and Pro Clubs.

Jason Sudeikis’ beloved Ted Lasso will be available as a selectable manager of AFC Richmond in Career Mode, as fans can play as their favourite moustached manager running the show for AFC Richmond or any team of their choosing.

Players can also create their own Manager or select a real-world licensed manager to take control of AFC Richmond, or create a Player and join the AFC Richmond squad in a league of their choosing.

“I am truly fortunate, and deeply grateful, to have had many special moments in my career thus far, and I consider this experience among the best of them,” said Emmy Award-winner Jason Sudeikis.

“It is so f***ing cool to be in FIFA. I’m not sure this is going to help dispel the CGI rumours but f*** it, totally worth it,” said Emmy Award-winner Brett Goldstein, who plays AFC Richmond player Roy Kent. “I look forward to beating my nephew in a game with me as Roy Kent and him as Jamie Tartt. He’s gonna be furious.”

Fans will also be able to play as AFC Richmond as part of the ‘Rest of The World’ league in Kick Off, Online Friendlies and Online Seasons with Roy Kent, Jamie Tartt, Sam Obisanya and Dani Rojas all featuring as part of the Greyhounds’ squad. AFC Richmond’s iconic home stadium, Nelson Road, will also feature in FIFA 23.

‘FIFA 23’ is out on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Stadia, PS4, and Xbox One on September 30.
