Apart from hundreds of authentic football, we may also get the fictional football manager Ted Lasso and his team AFC Richmond in FIFA 23. The popular comedy TV series Ted Lasso was released back in 2020 where he was the manager of an English football club named AFC Richmond.
Ted Lasso had recently teased his FIFA 23 debut on Twitter while EA Sports has replied with an emoji.
