Now the extravagant coach will definitely win the Premier League.
Rumors that FIFA 23 will add a fictional football club from the series «Ted Lasso», appeared on the morning of September 21. Now EA has officially confirmed — in the new part of FIFA will allow you to play for «Richmond»!
• «Ted Lasso» — a series about a coach who manages an English football team. The show has been nominated for 20 Emmy Awards, and starring Jason Sudeikis won a Golden Globe for acting. Two seasons aired on Apple TV+, and filming for the third began in March.
• Feature of the series is that Ted Lasso is an American football coach. He knows nothing about English football and hardly understands the rules. Richmond is an English Premier League club to which Lasso invited a business woman. She dreams of taking revenge on her ex-husband for treason: once her husband created a club, and Ted Lasso, as planned, should destroy it.
• At first, the methods and results of the new coach are skeptical, but over time, players and management begin to love Ted Lasso. He sincerely cares about the team and helps the athletes to believe in themselves. Even the cunning businesswoman who begins to support the team cannot resist Ted’s kindness.
• Ted Lasso tries to always stay positive and inspire the team, but he also has his share of problems. The marriage is about to fall apart, the son stayed in the US, and the defeats are unsettling. Periodically, the coach has panic attacks.
• The third season was planned to shoot in January, but Sudeikis did not like the script — he decided to rewrite it. The third season will have 12 episodes, but there is no release date yet.
• The popularity of the series attracted the attention of the gaming company EA. The developers will add Ted Lasso and the Richmond team to the football simulator FIFA 23. The game will be released on September 29th.
• The club will include the coaching staff and all famous players. Gamers will be able to play as Jamie Tartt, Dani Rojas, Sam Obisanya, Roy Kent and Isaac McAdoo. The club’s home stadium, Nelson Road, will also appear in FIFA 23.
• Play as Richmond in Kick-Off, Solo Career, Online Seasons, and Online Friendlies. The club can be added to any league.
• Prior to this, only fictional players appeared in FIFA. For example, FIFA 17 added a story mode about Alex Hunter. At the beginning of his career, the young man was looking for a club, but over time he got to the national team.
