Ted Lasso will be part of the new installment of FIFA, where players will be able to add him to their team as a coach.
Ted Lasso holds a special place in the hearts of everyone who has seen the famous Apple TV series. And it is impossible not to fall in love with this sweet character who has the best intentions and wishes for the people around him, but whose luck does not seem to be on his side, leading him to change his sweet personality for a more somber tone, but without leaving It was always the touch of humor.
For now, the series has three seasons and its success seems to remain constant, because at this year’s Emmy Awards , Ted Lasso was one of the favorites in the nominations, with 20 nominations for the program whose cast of actors and actresses headed by Jason Sudeikis, Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster, Nick Mohammed and Sarah Niles, had 10 nominations in the acting arm of the competition alone.
In Ted Lasso, the plot follows a character with that name who has been called to lead a famous European soccer team for its success, but whose coach has had to change due to a love affair with the now director of the club called AFC Richmond, which plays in the English Premier League (the highest category of football in England). The problem? That Ted Lasso has zero experience as a football coach and must devise a plan to be accepted by the players and the fans.
Although in the Apple series Ted Lasso‘s success as a coach is not really visible, in real life the opposite has happened. And it is that this character -played by Jason Sudeikis, who you can see acting in other films- will now also be a participant in FIFA 23 , joining the playable characters that you can choose to participate in the sports competitions offered by this canonical video game .
The decision has been made by the firm of Canadian origin Electronic Arts, which despite the conflicts around rights to use the FIFA name that they recently experienced, still maintains this brand to produce its video games . On this occasion, they will add Ted Lasso to the most famous courts in the virtual world .
Ted Lasso can be hired by players as a coach to lead teams in the game mode that focuses on management duties. Responding to the news, Jason Sudeikis said, “Our cast and crew have worked tremendously on this series, and we are flattered that it has resonated with so many people. We can’t wait to see our fans enjoying the opportunity to play with us, or even play against their favorite AFC Richmond players.”
FIFA 23 will go on sale on September 30 of this year and will be available on Xbox Series, PlayStation 5, PC, Stadia and previous generation Sony and Microsoft consoles.
