About Ted Lasso
One of Apple TV’s biggest success stories, Ted Lasso’s first full series was launched in 2020. It follows a silly US sports coach as he tries to save a fictitious English team’s season. The creator and star of the show, Jason Sudeikis, remarked that this move was a “dream come true”.
Sudeikis, through a statement, revealed that he warmly welcomed this interesting collaboration program with Fifa. He also revealed that the cast and crew of the show work relentlessly every day and such a collaboration is a great boost to the entire team. The team is looking forward to portraying their favorite AFC Richmond characters and even playing against them, as the case may be.
The titular character played by Sudeikis can be chosen to manage AFC Richmond as well as other teams. Nelson Road, the home field of AFC Richmond, as well as well-known series characters Kent, Tartt, Sam Obisanya, and Dani Rojas, will all appear in the game. Similarly, fans will be allowed to create or choose different managers to lead AFC Richmond.
