While waiting for the official announcement which seems imminent, everyone is passing the buck. But between the fortuitous appearance of the club in the database statistics of the game, immediately followed by winks supported from the official Twitter account of the series, the doubt is almost no longer allowed. ““Watch out, Mario! You’re not the only pixelated man with a mustache who never knows where the tube is taking him“, can we read, both in reference to the famous plumber, but also to the no less famous London underground.
The photo itself shows Jason Sudeikis, the interpreter of the American football coach propelled on the benches of the Premier League, seen from behind in a studio of motion capture, which corresponds to the material used by EA Sports to ensure the modeling of certain players and now star coaches. After the partnership with Marvel around FIFA Ultimate Team and FUT Heroes, this announcement would once again link the universe of series and football simulation, which over the years has become an essential promotional tool.
In any case, it will not be necessary to wait too long to see the partnership materialize, since the release of FIFA 23 will take place on September 30, or even three days earlier for purchasers of the Ultimate edition. The Ted Lasso series will host its third season on Apple TV+ by the end of the year.
