Ted Lasso, AFC Richmond are making their debut in EA Sports FIFA 23

The fictional club in the Apple TV+ hit show "Ted Lasso" will be a playable team in the EA SPORTS FIFA 23 video game, it was announced Wednesday.

The Greyhounds will appear, by default, under the Rest of the World category and can be swapped into career mode, kickoff and in online play.

The character Ted Lasso, depicted by Jason Sudeikis, will be available in career mode.

"I am truly fortunate, and deeply grateful, to have had many special moments in my career thus far, and I consider this experience among the best of them," Sudeikis said in a statement.

"As long-time fans of EA SPORTS FIFA, having Ted Lasso and the whole AFC Richmond squad incorporated into the newest version of the game is truly a dream come true for myself and the rest of the fellas."

Perhaps no one from the show is as excited about the development as Phil Dunster, who plays star striker Jamie Tartt.
