“Believe it. #FIFA23 x @TedLasso He’s proven he belongs in the game, now Ted Lasso and @AFCRichmond are playable in FIFA 23 starting September 30,” EA tweeted.

In an official news release, EA said Lasso — famously played by Jason Sudekis — will be a playable manager in Career Mode on FIFA ’23.

In addition to Lasso, FIFA players can manage AFC Richmond — Lasso’s team in the hit show — in FIFA’s Premier League or any other playable Career Mode.

The Emmy award-winning show follows the story of Lasso, an American football coach in London charged with leading a struggling English Premier League football (soccer) team.

According to IMDB, the comedy-drama won 11 Primetime Emmys and received 40 total nominations.
