This isn’t the first time Ted Lasso’s addition to the game has been teased. list of teams on the game’s official website.
Ted Lasso originally debuted in August 2020 and tells the story of the eponymous character. An American football coach makes an unprecedented move to Britain to manage a declining football team, AFC Richmond.

How will Ted and AFC Richmond fit into the game? Most importantly, is the team ready for online play? That doesn’t seem very likely. After all, AFC Richmond is completely fictional…but perhaps the players themselves can find a home as part of FIFA Ultimate Team.
