Ted Lasso and AFC Richmond are both headed to FIFA 23

FIFA 23 might be welcoming several new real-life teams for the first time in series history, it appears that EA isn't above the partnerships with fictional teams as well. 

Jason Sudeikis' character, Ted Lasso, will join FIFA 23 as one of its many playable managers alongside AFC Richmond, a football club that exists in the hit Apple TV+ show's universe. 

Players can choose Ted Lasso in career mode or make their own manager as well as select other real-world licensed managers to handle AFC Richmond

The addition of the fictional football club also means that custom players can join the AFC Richmond club and represent the team.

The Greyhounds will also join FIFA 23 as part of the "Rest of the World" in Kickoff, Online Friendlies, and Online Seasons.

FIFA 23 will be available on the 30th but you'll get access to it on the 27th if you pre-order it.
