The hints were taken correctly – Electronic Arts really add Ted Lasso from the series of the same name to FIFA 23. And not only him!
In addition to Ted Lasso, the football simulator will be replenished by coach Beard, the main stars of Richmond (Jamie Tartt, Dani Rojas, Sam Obisanya, Roy Kent, Isaac McAdoo) and the club’s home arena, the Nelson Road stadium.
You will be able to choose Ted Lasso as the head coach of your team in Career Mode and manage Richmond – the club will be allowed to be included in the Premier League or any other Career Mode league.
In FIFA Ultimate Team mode, you can assign Ted Lasso or Beard as a coach, as well as get Richmond items, including kits and performances. To open content, you need to complete tests and tasks.
FIFA 23 releases September 30 on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, Origin), PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and Stadia. Pre-order is already open.
