Ted Lasso star and the Grammy host team up.

Jason Sudeikis as “Ted Lasso” will team up with Trevor Noah for EA Sport’s new game show titled “FIFA Face-Off,” and will see them going against other players.

It is truly a lucky day for fans who have been waiting for the Golden Globe-winning show “Ted Lasso” star, Jason Sudeikis and the host of the Grammys 2021, Trevor Noah to be involved in some project together.

Jason Sudeikis and Trevor Noah are a part of the celebrity team, which will play in EA Sports’ upcoming two-part live gaming match against EA SPORTS FIFA pros.

The two will play in a team and are set to compete against others to win a grand prize of $25,000, which will be given to lucky fans, who are going to be selected on the basis of a video submission community contest 

Jason Sudeikis will appear in his iconic titular character of the Apple+ show, Ted Lasso, in FIFA Face-Off.

He’s not the only character from the sports comedy-drama, as Jason will have Brendan Hunt appearing as Coach Beard, on his side. The FIFA celeb team will also include the singers Becky G and Nicky Jam gaming along with Jason Sudeikis and Trevor Noah.

The ex-husband of Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis also commented on why Ted Lasso is the perfect guy for the competition.

“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,” said Jason Sudeikis about the upcoming game show.

“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.”

“EA SPORTS FIFA, once upon a time, only simulated football matches, but now, it IS world football culture, driving global conversation and enhancing how fans all around the world engage with the sport,” addressed Brent Koning, the Group Director & Commissioner, FIFA Competitive Gaming.

He also added the reason behind choosing celebs and influencers to play FIFA Face-Off. “We believe the key to growing our fanbases is tapping into a celebrity and unique world-class events to create competitive gaming entertainment for our fans. Who better to help build fanbases than Ted Lasso, Coach Beard, Trevor Noah, Becky G, and Nicky Jam!”

Jason Sudeikis and Trevor Noah can be spectated live by fans, playing FIFA Face-Off on March 19th and 26th on either Twitch or YouTube EA Sports channel.
