Actor Jason Sudeikis appeared in a Tweet from the TV show’s official account showing him being digitally scanned… and hinting that it’s an upcoming video game.
“Watch out, Mario!” it reads. “You’re not the only bearded man who never knows where the pipes are taking him…”
To add, EA Sports FIFA responded to the Tweet, with a simple eye emoji.

This isn’t the first time Ted Lasso’s addition to the game has been teased, with a recent leak suggesting AFC Richmond will be in the game when it’s briefly included. list of teams on the game’s official website.
The original Ted Lasso came out in August 2020 and tells the story of the character of the same name – an American football coach who has moved to the UK never before to manage the faltering football team, AFC Richmond.
Of course, this addition will be music to the ears of Ted Lasso fans. I mean, it might even be the reason I finally got into FIFA.
But it begs a question – how will Ted and AFC Richmond fit into the game? Most importantly, will the team be available to play online? That seems unlikely. After all, AFC Richmond is purely fictional… but perhaps the players themselves could find a home as part of FIFA Ultimate Team.

For now, we’ll have to wait and see. But the thought of adding Ted and AFC Richmond to the game opened up a world of potential. Football is life, right?
FIFA 23 will launch on September 30, 2022, but already already available for some players earlier this month due to a preload error. Those who pre-order the Ultimate Edition will be able to arrive three days earlier on September 27.
