Brett Goldstein, who won two Emmys for his role as AFC Richmond player Roy Kent, joked that it would be an opportunity to take his on-screen character’s feud with Jamie Tartt into the virtual world.
“I’m looking forward to beating my nephew at a game with me as Roy Kent and him as Jamie Tartt. He’s going to be furious,” the actor said.
The game Fifa was launched in 1993 by EA Sports. Most real-world football teams are available to players.
Sudeikis’ titular character will be chosen as the manager of AFC Richmond, but also for other teams.
Similarly, fans will be allowed to choose or create another manager to take charge of AFC Richmond.
Well-known characters from the show, including Kent, Tartt, Sam Obisany and Dani Rojas will feature in the game, as will AFC Richmond’s home ground, Nelson Road.
