Ted Lasso and his entire team make their arrival in the game

Ted Lasso

This is probably not the novelty that fans of the Fifa saga were waiting for the most, but the AFC Richmond team from the Ted Lasso series will be playable in the next video game from EA Sports. Iconic license, Fifa is the most popular football simulation game series in the world. Present for more than two decades on home consoles, the license tries to reinvent itself every year.

On the occasion of the release of FIFA 23 for September 30, EA Sports teams have just announced that the AFC Richmond team will be playable in the game. This imaginary club is from the series of Apple TV+ “Ted Lasso”. In this three-season fiction, the viewer follows the adventures of the team as well as the main supervisors.

Roy Kent present in the game

Within the team the character of Roy Kent will be present in the next FIFA alongside Jamie Tartt, Dani Rojas, Sam Obisanya, and Isaac McAdoo. Very important characters in the series. The coach can be used in the “career manager” mode of the game while the team itself can arrive as a guest in Ligue 1 or the Premier League depending on the player’s choice. EA Sports even announced that AFC Richmond’s stadium, “Nelson Road”, was going to be usable in the game.

In a very humorous style Ted Lasso makes fun of today’s society through the prism of sport. The story begins when an American football coach finds himself at the head of an English football team.

EA Sports and Apple, the beginnings of a takeover?

In recent months the world of video games has been shaken by numerous takeovers. After that of Activison by Microsoft, it is Ubisoft which recently announced major changes to its capital. Regarding EA Sports, a takeover had been mentioned a month ago with Amazon before the information was denied.

Apple, present in the world of mobile games with Apple Arcade for several years, could make EA Sports its priority in order to arrive in force in the global video game market. Today the studio has well-known licenses such as Fifa, Apex Legends, F1 2022 or even the Madden license, which is very popular across the Atlantic.
