In a statement, Sudeikis said he was “very grateful” for all the great moments in his career and that he ranks an appearance in FIFA 23 as “one of the best”. For the actor and the rest of the cast, “it’s a dream come true.”
In addition to Ted Lasso, multiple players from the series are also playable in the game, for example, players can get started with Jamie Tartt, Roy Kent, Dani Rojas and Sam Obisanya. Brett Goldstein, the actor who plays Roy Kent, can’t wait to see himself in the game, despite CGI rumors circulating about him.
“It’s so cool to be in FIFA. It’s not going to help debunk the CGI rumours, but f*ck that, it’s worth it. I look forward to beating my nephew when I play as Roy Kent and he as Jamie Tartt. He’s going to be furious!”
