EA has announced that FIFA 23 will include a crossover with Apple’s hit series Ted Lasso, which brings Career Mode, Pro Clubs and more to AFC Richmond. The Greyhounds may be moved into career mode, kickoff, and online play and will, by default, be included under the Rest of the World category. A career option will feature Jason Sudeikis’ Ted Lasso character. In a comment, Sudeikis said, “I am incredibly lucky and genuinely thankful to have had many unique moments in my work thus far, and I believe this experience to be among the finest of them. “Having Ted Lasso and the entire AFC Richmond team included in the latest version of the game is definitely a dream come true for the rest of the lads as long-time fans of EA SPORTS FIFA and me,” said the other players.
EA probably anticipates that the inclusion of the popular TV personality would attract new gamers to the title. The “Ted Lasso” main character Lasso, Coach Beard, Jamie Tartt, Dani Rojas, Sam Obisanya, Roy Kent, and Isaac McAdoo are significant addition which will delight many followers as the video game series often depicts real-life clubs. Recently, the Apple TV+ series received its second Emmy for Outstanding Comedy, a noteworthy accomplishment for the still young programme. In 2020, the streaming service made “Ted Lasso” available. According to David Jackson, VP of Brand for Adidas, Ted Lasso “has become a cultural icon in a short period of time and with little prior experience, bringing the passion of football and the strength of belief to life for millions of fans worldwide.”
About Ted Lasso –
Despite having no prior expertise coaching soccer, Ted Lasso, a former college football coach from the United States, is suddenly chosen to lead AFC Richmond, a hypothetical English Premier League team. Rebecca Welton, the team’s owner, employs Lasso in the hopes that he will fail so she may get back with the team’s former owner, her cheating ex-husband. Ted’s charisma, attitude, and sense of humour start to win Rebecca, the staff, and others who were hesitant about his hiring around, though.
Rotten Tomatoes, a reviewing aggregator, gave a 92% approval rating founded on 73 reviews, with an overall rating of 8.2. According to the website’s critics’ opinion, Ted Lasso “fleshes up its basic idea with persistent positivity and a delightful act from Jason Sudeikis,” which is warm and sweet but not terribly funny. Relying on 21 reviews, Metacritic assigned the first series a weighted average score of 71/100, indicating “generally good reviews.”
