Brett Goldstein, who won two Emmys for his portrayal of AFC Richmond player Roy Kent, joked that this would be an opportunity to bring his character’s on-screen feud with Jamie Tartt to the world virtual.
“I can’t wait to beat my nephew in a match with me as Roy Kent and him as Jamie Tartt. He’s going to be furious,” the actor said.
The Fifa game was launched in 1993, by EA Sports. Most real world football teams are available for players.
The titular character of Sudeikis will be selectable as manager of AFC Richmond, but also for other teams.
Likewise, fans will be allowed to choose or create a different manager to take control of AFC Richmond.
Well-known characters from the series including Kent, Tartt, Sam Obisanya and Dani Rojas will all feature in the game, as will AFC Richmond’s home stadium, Nelson Road.
