Ted Lasso and AFC Richmond from Apple TV+ will appear in FIFA 23 as a playable team, but Apple gamers will be left out.

Electronic Arts unveiled the Apple TV+ additions of Ted Lasso, Coach Beard, and other stars such as Jamie Tartt, Dani Rojas, Sam Obisanya, Roy Kent, and Isaac McAdoo. The team will be available on September 30, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia.

Unfortunately, the FIFA franchise isn't available on Apple operating systems.

Players can choose Ted Lasso as a playable manager in Career Mode or manage AFC Richmond by swapping them into the Premier League or any other playable Career Mode league.

AFC Richmond will be playable across Career Mode, Kick-Off, Online Friendlies, and Online Seasons, including The Greyhounds' Nelson Road home stadium.

In FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, players will have customization items such as authentic kits and select Ted Lasso or Coach Beard as a club manager. Additionally, all AFC Richmond content will be available through objectives and challenges.

Ted Lasso is an American sports comedy series on Apple TV+ developed by Jason Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt, and Joe Kelly. The series follows Ted Lasso, an American college football coach hired to coach an English football team.
