Ted Lasso set for FIFA 23 crossover as face scan images appear

More concrete evidence has emerged pointing to Ted Lasso making an appearance in FIFA 23 in one form or another.

Perhaps the most famous football coach in the world, Ted Lasso has taken the world by storm with his healthy attitude and quirky approach to coaching a brand new sport.

Ted and AFC Richmond return to the small screen in the upcoming third and final season of Ted Lasso.

However, fans of Ted and his players may not have to wait too long to see their favorite coach on the sidelines of the field.

Ted Lasso teases facial scans for FIFA 23

Despite rumors that Ted and AFC Richmond could appear in the latest FIFA game in some capacity, no concrete announcement has been made yet.

However, the official Ted Lasso Twitter account gave a very strong hint that the coach himself is ready to enter the game world.

The back of what appears to be the head of Ted Lasso actor Jason Sudekis is shown in front of a huge face scan array, which would be used to create an image of his face for use in the game.

The caption seems to remove any doubt as to what the scan would be for: “Watch out, Mario! You’re not the only pixelated man with a mustache who never knows where the tube takes him…”

This is clearly a reference to the Nintendo character Mario, and referring to himself as “pixelated” would be a clear indication that the face scan would also be pixelated.

The kicker, of course, is that the official account for FIFA responded with an eyes emoji.

While nothing has been confirmed, it certainly looks like something is cooking on the virtual pitch at AFC Richmond.
