FIFA FACE OFF – Ted Lasso And Coach Bear vs. Trevor Noah
The clash will be streamed on Twitter and YouTube on Friday. It all kicks off at 12.30 PM EDT, although the Ted Lasso stars are not the first match-up.
Mr. Sudeikis commented:
Having previously no experience coaching soccer, or football if you will, I think Ted Lasso is the perfect candidate for dominating in an EA SPORTS FIFA esports competition. That said, Ted’s passion for competing and having Coach Beard at his side in support may just be enough for him to achieve esports glory in the world’s most popular sports video game. Never underestimate Coach Ted Lasso.
