Ted Lasso characters join Fifa 23
Brett Goldstein, who has won two Emmy awards for his portrayal of AFC Richmond player Roy Kent, joked that it would be an opportunity to bring his character’s on-screen feud with Jamie Tartt into the virtual world.
“I look forward to beating my nephew in a game with me as Roy Kent and him as Jamie Tartt. He’s gonna be furious,” the actor said.
The Fifa game was launched in 1993, by EA Sports. Most real-world football teams are available to players.
Sudeikis’ titular character will be selectable as a manager of AFC Richmond, but also for other teams.
Similarly, fans will be allowed to choose or create a different manager to take control of AFC Richmond.
Well-known characters from the series, including Kent, Tartt, Sam Obisanya and Dani Rojas will all feature in the game, as will AFC Richmond’s home stadium, Nelson Road.
